Voters got some face time with the Republican candidate for Congress. With the election tomorrow, Rick Berg is being as visible as he can.

Voters got some face time with the Republican candidate for Congress. With the election tomorrow, Rick Berg is being as visible as he can.

Berg was met with a lot of enthusiasm at his rally in Grand Forks on Monday. According to him, enthusiasm is the key to winning the election.

"We've been all over the state. They're enthused, fired up. It's been great," said Berg.

After criss-crossing the state, Berg said today is all about tomorrow.

"Our push is turning out the vote. Encouraging people who really want to see America back on track. They need to get out and vote tomorrow. Absolutely."

Berg has been making the rounds from Grand Forks to Larimore to Fargo.

One day until the midterm election, and a recent national poll putting Earl Pomeroy ahead.

"We'll see which poll is right tomorrow."

Berg and his supporters are nowhere near taking a break.

"People are concerned about the spending at the national level, and the healthcare takeover by the government. Those are some of the key issues."

"Making sure those phone calls get made, networking, this is about getting everyone out there, building that enthusiasm and getting everyone to the polls," said North Dakota Governor John Hoeven, who is a Berg supporter.

A much talked-about race for the congressional seat, both Hoeven and Berg said it will all come down to the voters on November 2.

"This is about democracy in action. This is when the people speak," said Hoeven.

"The final push today and tomorrow. That's what we've been doing today! I'm looking forward to tomorrow," said Berg.
