A last-minute rally by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump drew thousands to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport two days before Election Day.

Trump urged cheering supporters in Minnesota to deliver a state the GOP hasn't won in 40 years.

The candidate spoke for nearly 40 minutes to a crowd that spilled outside an airline hangar. Some political observers questioned his stop two days before the election in a place Republicans have lost in 10 straight presidential elections, but Trump says he'll pull off an upset. "Oh Minnesota, you better prove me right," he said. "Or these people will never, ever forget. You better prove me right. Are you going to prove me right?"
