Happy Presidents Day! Today is the day we celebrate the brave men who led our country over the years. Some of us celebrate the holiday by getting the day off of work and some of us shop for all of the presidential deals available!

Minnesota is a great state, no doubt! But, it's not so great if you want to be president. Sorry, Amy Klobuchar. We don't exactly have a great track record of making it to the White House. Minnesota has never produced a president since our country's birth in 1776. I did a little investigating...And, actually, only 18 states have put a president in the Oval Office.

States that have produced a president;

New York--7x
Ohio--6x
Virginia--5x
Massachusetts--4x
California--3x
Illinois--3x
Tennessee--3x
Texas--3x
Arkansas--1x
Georgia--1x
Indiana--1x
Kansas--1x
Louisiana--1x
Michigan--1x
Missouri--1x
New Hampshire--1x
New Jersey--1x
Pennsylvania--1x

I'm not saying it's not possible...and we have come close over the years. Our presidential races are kind of like the Minnesota Vikings. We've got potential and then something always goes wrong in the playoffs. It's definitely possible, it's just never been done before. I think this just means that our turn is coming. Happy Presidents Day!
