Well- their last big chance to sway the voters is now over, after Democrats and Republicans spent the weekend knocking on doors and rallying the party faithful before Tuesday's election.
The Havre Daily News has this on the Republican statewide bus tour, as the GOP clearly looks to tie local candidates to national problems:
Both Essmann and Rehberg said the candidates in the Havre area show a clear contrast between the Democrat and Republican candidates, and congratulated the local Republican volunteers in their work to highlight those differences.
Essmann said the lack of hiring in the country is due to the policies of President Barack Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress.
“Montanans have a chance to send a message back to Washington,” he said, adding that that could start by electing Warburton, Hansen and Hutton to work to reverse the national policies.
And how about this? Remember when Harry Reid got in trouble for saying how he couldn't understand why any Hispanic could vote for a Republican? Here's what Congressman Denny Rehberg had to say in Havre.
“If you believe in faith and family and freedom, then how could you not vote Republican Tuesday?” Rehberg said.
Meanwhile, Democrats targeted the state's major cities with Get Out the Vote rallies. Even Senator Tester took a break from campaigning for Harry Reid (D-NV), Barbara Boxer, and other embattled Senate Democrats to make an appearance in Montana for the event.
As KRTV reports:
Attorney General Steve Bullock urged people to make their voice heard on Tuesday.
"Especially in a state like ours, I mean we have legislative races that come down to five or six votes. So, you could actually be that vote that makes a difference," Bullock said.
