Candidates blanket Pennsylvania in down-to-wire Senate race

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – The candidates in Pennsylvania’s down-to-the-wire U.S. Senate race are criss-crossing the state on the last day of campaigning before the election.

Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey is flying around the state Monday, stopping in five media markets before a nighttime rally near his Allentown-area home.

Democrat Katie McGinty is speaking at Monday rallies for party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at the University of Pittsburgh and on Philadelphia’s Independence Mall. The Obamas and rockers Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi also will be at Independence Mall.

The Toomey-McGinty contest could determine whether Republicans keep their Senate majority. The too-close-to-call race is the nation’s most expensive Senate campaign ever.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold an evening rally at Scranton’s Lackawanna College. Toomey hasn’t campaigned with Trump or said whether he’ll vote for him.
