INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The candidates in Indiana’s contentious races for U.S. Senate and governor are fanning out across the state in a final pitch for votes.

Those two races highlight the Indiana ballot for Tuesday’s election and recent polls have shown voters closely divided on both.

Monday’s campaigning follows several days of multiple stops around the state. Republican Todd Young was starting his day Monday with a visit to an Evansville veterans’ hall, while Democrat Evan Bayh was meeting campaign volunteers in Bloomington.

The candidates for governor are rushing around the state as well. Democrat John Gregg planned Monday stops in Fort Wayne, New Albany and Evansville. Republican Eric Holcomb’s plans include Monday events in Elkhart, West Lafayette and Indianapolis.
