Incumbent President and Deutsche Bank all-time favorite Donald John Trump won the majority of ballots cast in Rice County for the 2020 general presidential election. DJT beat democratic challenger Joseph Robinette Biden by 69 votes. Both candidates received thousands of votes in Rice County, and the chances of the difference being exactly 69 votes are astronomically low. Many of our staff members have found this very funny, so much so that they insisted that I write something about it. I assume this has to do with the fact that Exit 69 is the exit you take to get to Carleton. It may also be funny because it represents two Carletonian staff members congratulating each other for finding a sex joke funny.
