HELENA, Mont. (AP) - In the last full week of campaigning, candidates for federal office are all over the Montana map trying to engage voters.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Steve Daines is holding events Monday and Tuesday for supporters in Harlowton, Livingston, Big Timber, Hardin, Roundup, Columbus and Red Lodge. On Tuesday he’ll host a private 7 p.m. rally in Billings with Dr. Ben Carson, a conservative Republican neurosurgeon who says he may run for president in 2016. Daines will also participate in a candidate forum hosted by the Montana Lodging and Hospitality Association in Billings.

Republican U.S. House candidate Ryan Zinke will be in and around Billings Monday and Tuesday and also meeting with the Montana Hospitality and Lodging Association and touring Briggs Distributing Co., a Billings beverage distributor. Zinke is slated to attend the Tuesday rally with Daines and Carson. Zinke also released a new ad Sunday night that attempts to link his Democratic opponent, John Lewis, to President Barack Obama’s positions on the national health care overhaul, government spending and energy.

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Amanda Curtis will attend a candidate forum Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the University of Montana where student voters can meet candidates for county, state and federal offices.

Lewis is meeting with his campaign team about a final whirlwind tour of the state and has a rally in Helena with supporters Tuesday night. Lewis has also put out an ad highlighting his endorsements by Montana newspapers.
