Former President Bill Clinton will make two stops in Minnesota on Tuesday to rally voters behind President Barack Obama and other Democratic candidates. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. at the University of Minnesota's McNamara Alumni Center in Minneapolis. Doors will open at 12:30 at the Kirby Student Center at the University of Minnesota, Duluth.

Clinton was in North Dakota stumping for U.S. Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp, the Forum reports.

Minnesota, with its 10 delegates, has not been a battleground state for the Obama and Mitt Romney campaigns, but it is getting a bit more attention in the final stretch before Election Day after a Star Tribune poll suggested Obama was ahead by just 3 percentage points in the state.

Both Obama and Mitt Romney have bought TV ads to run in the state in the final week before the election.

Romney's running mate Paul Ryan is scheduled to be in his homestate of Wisconsin on Tuesday, WEAU reports. Vice President Joe Biden has a planned stop in Superior, Wis., on Friday, the Associated Press reports.
