Days before elections, both campaigns headed to...Minnesota?

Both presidential campaigns are rallying supporters in the final days of the election in Minnesota, a state thought to be firmly for the Demorat but could be more competitive.

Former President Bill Clinton and Republican vice presidential hopeful Paul Ryan will campaign in Minnesota today.

Obama’s campaign has dismissed talk that Minnesota is tightening, but several polls show it is close.A Star Tribune poll released this weekend showed the president's lead a mere three percent, within the margin of error.

Both campaigns have spent most of their time in 10 or so swing states, which does not include Minnesota. But some of those states are off limits this week as they cope with the aftermath of the storm so candidates are looking at other somewhat competitive states.

Obama and Vice President Joe Biden do not have any public campaign events today, as they scuttle events to respond to Hurricane Sandy.

GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is attending a storm relief event in Ohio to help collect donations for storm-relief efforts. Ryan will drop by two Republican offices in Wisconsin, where volunteers are collecting items for storm relief efforts.
