The six mayors from Minnesota's Iron Range - named for their iron-ore mining districts - announced their endorsement in a letter dated Friday.
The group said they were supporting President Trump over Biden, after years of voting Democrat in the past.
"Like many in our region, we have voted for Democrats over many decades," they said in a letter.
"We have watched as our constituents' jobs left not only the Iron Range, but our country."
"By putting tariffs on our products and supporting bad trade deals, politicians like Joe Biden did nothing to help the working class."
