ROCHESTER, Minn. - As part of an 18 stop, 44 hour "Get Out to Vote" bus tour, Republican candidates stopped at the GOP Victory Office in Rochester to rally with supporters on the final weekend before Election Day

"Tuesday is gonna be a great day. Early voting is already above where we were in 2016 and we're leading the country. Minnesotans love to vote. We are so proud that we are able to go out and vote and we wear our stickers proudly that 'I voted,'" says U.S. Senate candidate Karin Housley.

Also at the stop was candidate for Governor Jeff Johnson, Chair of Republican Party of Minnesota Jennifer Carnahan, candidate for U.S. Congress Jim Hagedorn, candidate for U.S. Senate Jim Newberger, candidate for Attorney General Doug Wardlow, candidate for Secretary of State John Howe, candidate for State Auditor Pam Myhra, and candidate for State House Ken Bush meeting with supporters during the Rochester stop. Each candidate addressed the crowded room of people with a short speech, encouraging people to vote.

DFL candidates stopped in Rochester on Thursday as part of their 5-day "Get Out to Vote" bus tour. In the last days before the election, Housley's opponent current U.S. Senator Tina Smith is in St. Paul and Burnsville today meeting with constituents; State Auditor candidate Julie Blaha is traveling the state over the weekend; Attorney General candidate Keith Ellison held a news conference with supporters at the State Capitol Saturday morning; current U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar was in St. Paul and Northfield today; U.S. Congressman and candidate for Governor Tim Wlaz and his running mate Representative Peggy Flanagan traveled across Minnesota this week; candidate for U.S. Congress Dan Feehan is meeting with voters in Albert Lea, Austin, Rochester, and Winona over the weekend; and Representative Duane Sauke has been door-knocking.
