On the road again: Obama campaigns for Minn. Dems

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) President Barack Obama is ending a four-day campaign swing at a rally in Minneapolis for the Democratic nominee for governor, Mark Dayton.

Obama also is helping raise money for House Democratic campaigns.

Dayton's a former U.S. senator who's in a close contest with Republican Tim Emmer, a state legislator. Also in the race is the Independence Party's Tom Horner, a public relations executive and political pundit.

It's been a long week of campaigning by the president, with earlier stops in Oregon, Washington state, California and Nevada.

He's trying to boost the fortunes of Senate allies ahead of the Nov. 2 election. Their fate on Election Day will help determine how much progress Obama makes on the rest of his agenda.
