It’s the final day before the 2010 election and the three major party candidates for governor will make a mad dash across the state. Democrat Mark Dayton will do a statewide fly around with the other DFL candidates on the ballot.

Republican Tom Emmer will hit 19 cities in 25 hours.

IP candidate Tom Horner will hit the road on a bus tour of several portions of the state.
