So an actual aquatic hotel, or financially underwater?

If a Republican he willl claim the Democrats are in cahoots with the sharks to prevent the town from getting an underwater hotel. They will claim it is woke green politics..

If he is a Democrat, the Republicans will release the sharks and claim the Demonrats did it, The brain cancer which is "conservatism" continues to metstasize, claiming everything is a conspiracy against the Sainted Martyr Trump..

An underwater hotel in Minnesota doesn't seem too smart, but maybe he's betting on rising temperatures and water levels

How does a town of a little over 3600 people qualify as a city?

That water looks disgusting.

Why is there never any interest in building these sorts of things where one might actually enjoy the view?

Recall efforts were spurred by Swanson's underwater hotel and cryptocurrency pursuits

Sure, it was the hotel that was the problem.

Because ugly underwater hotels would make those nice places ugly.   Its presence negates its purpose.

As previously featured here, the hotel thing was not just a bad idea, but a bad idea from a bad actor. The crypto bit was mostly just him pushing to create an official city coin to generate revenue, and I don't think it ever actually went anywhere. He also did more mundane corruption like using insider info to buy some real estate and co-opting a nonprofit into direct funds to a business he owns.

That was on his campaign posters.  They still elected him.

climate change is so strong it raises the water level in the Great Lakes?   There's an effect I wasn't expecting.

Would you expect a town called Two Harbors to needs water level to rise before they could build something underwater?
