Erstwhile Battleground of Minnesota Goes Blue

I didn't technically have Minnesota as a battleground state, but it was right on the line and the Romney camp was investing some resources in the state.  It goes to Obama again.

So, let's assess where we are:
Decided Battlegrounds for Obama: Wisconsin, Michigan, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania
Decided Battlegrounds for Romney: None
Undecided Battlegrounds: Florida, Virginia, Colorado,  Ohio, Nevada, Iowa
Unpredicted Close Battlegrounds: North Carolina

Barack Obama has 173 Electoral Votes in the bag.  He will almost surely win in California, Oregon and Washington, worth another 76.  That gives him a floor of 249 electoral votes.  Florida would end it.   So would Ohio and any one other state.
