Primary eve brings frenzied final push for votes

STILLWATER, Minn. (AP) — The Republican candidates hoping to unseat Gov. Mark Dayton later this fall are in a last-minute scramble to lock up votes.

The four major candidates worked cafe counters, manned phone banks and surfed talk radio Monday in a primary that has no breakway favorite.

Business executive Scott Honour visited a Stillwater diner that's caught heat for imposing a "minimum wage fee" and said he supported the owner for highlighting what he called the consequences of government raising the minimum wage.

Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson was banking on a get-out-the-vote operation spearheaded by the state GOP, thanks to winning the endorsement.

Former House Speaker Kurt Zellers was personally calling voters. And former House Minority Leader Marty Seifert was also on the trail.
