Republican presidential candidate John McCain will campaign in Minnesota again on Friday.

      McCain's Minnesota campaign manager says the senator from Arizona will hold a town hall meeting Friday afternoon in the Minneapolis suburb of Lakeville. Details on how to attend will be released Monday.

      McCain was last in the state on Sept. 19, when he and running mate Sarah Palin held a rally in Blaine. Palin won't be along for the upcoming visit.

      Polls have shown McCain keeping Minnesota competitive against Democratic candidate Barack Obama, although a Republican hasn't taken Minnesota in a presidential election since 1972.
