HELENA,Mont. -

U.S. Sen. Jon Tester is spending the weekend before the election barnstorming the state with other Democrats in a final effort to break through a tough-as-nails battle with U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg.
    
Tester says he wants voters who go to the polls on Tuesday to consider which candidate has done more for the state. The Democrat argues he has worked hard on tough issues in his first term, while Rehberg has done little.
    
Rehberg had a quieter weekend, spending his time with family and at his Billings field office helping volunteers encourage voters to the polls.
    
Rehberg says his closing message to voters remains the same as when his campaign began nearly two years ago: This election is a referendum on the policies of President Barack Obama.
