ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Republican Rep. Chip Cravaack and Democrat Rick Nolan both hunted before dawn Saturday as one of the nation’s top House races enters the final phase.

The outings showed their comfort with guns and Minnesota’s deer opener, before Cravaack headed to Duluth to appear with the head of the National Rifle Association and Nolan campaigned around his home base near Brainerd.

Elsewhere in the state, volunteers and candidates hustled to remind people to vote Tuesday.

Opponents of a constitutional gay marriage ban brought in a conservative CNN commentator to reach out to conservatives as the group tries to reach a million voters.

Supporters of the marriage amendment urged pastors to preach for it this weekend and remind parishioners not to skip the question, since blank votes count as no votes.
