Thanking volunteers at a phone bank, Josh Romney said he loved being on the campaign trail for his father and added, "He's my hero."

The campaigns for Romney and President Obama have sent top surrogates to Minnesota in the final few days before the election on Tuesday. On Sunday, GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan was in the Twin Cities, and former President Bill Clinton was in St. Cloud.

A new Public Policy Polling survey shows Obama up 8 points in Minnesota. A new KSTP/SurveyUSA poll shows Obama up by 11 points in the state.
