In the last week, Bill campaigned primarily in Columbia Heights, Robbinsdale, and 13th ward Minneapolis; in preceding week, in Richfield and south Minneapolis along Nicollet Avenue; also campaigned heavily in Crystal and New Hope. No time spent in Fridley or Spring Lake Park. The Star Tribune newspaper scarcely covered this campaign. Some media exposure on Minnesota Public Radio, KSTP-TV, North Metro TV (cable), and KARE-TV.

The campaign web site saw a surge of traffic on the days before the election (Nov. 4) indicating that voters do take seriously their obligation to cast an intelligent vote for elective office. Some daily results (or averages) are as follows:
