A trio of Republican governors is coming to the aid of Minnesota gubernatorial nominee Tom Emmer in the campaign's final weekend.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota's Tim Pawlenty, Mississippi's Haley Barbour and New Jersey's Chris Christie will headline a rally on the Saturday before Election Day. The Minnesota Republican Party announced the event but hasn't released full details.

Emmer and his Democratic opponent Mark Dayton have received plenty of outside help in the campaign's home stretch. President Barack Obama is due in town this weekend for Dayton, the leader in recent polls.
