Bill Clinton, Paul Ryan rally last minute support Sunday in MN - New York News

Bill Clinton, Paul Ryan rally last minute support Sunday in Minn.

Posted: Updated:

Both presidential campaigns are squeezing in one final visit to Minnesota before Election Day on Tuesday.

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will hold a rally at the Sun Country Airlines hangar in Minneapolis at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, while former President Bill Clinton will hold a rally at St. Cloud State University at 6:45 p.m. later that day.

Ryan stopped by Hudson, Wis., on Oct. 10 to thank volunteers collecting supplies for victims of Hurricane Sandy. He later had dinner with his wife in St. Paul. He was also in Minnesota for a fundraiser in downtown Minneapolis Oct. 13, although the stop did not include any public events.

Clinton was also in the state Oct. 30, rallying for President Obama's reelection with stops in both Minneapolis and Duluth.

The campaigns of both Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney purchased television and radio ads in Minnesota within the last week, leading some to believe Minnesota -- thought to be a safe "blue" state for Obama -- may actually be up for grabs.

As of Saturday night, Real Clear Politics says Obama has a 5-point lead in the state, 49.3 to 44.3.

Both of Sunday's events are free and open to the public.
