Many political experts and insiders call the week leading up to the elections "kitchen sink" week - where candidates and their supporters will throw everything they've got at voters to try and rack up votes at the polls. 

This week, new KSTP/SurveyUSA polls show where candidates stand in both the Minnesota attorney general's race and the governor's race. Sunday night at 10, we'll have exclusive new results in the special U.S. Senate race between Tina Smith and Karin Housley.
