KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - The Latest on Vice President Mike Pence's campaign visit in Montana (all times local):

2:50 p.m.

Vice President Mike Pence says re-electing Montana U.S. Sen. Jon Tester to a third term would embolden the opposition to President Donald Trump and risk unraveling his accomplishments.

Pence told supporters at a Monday rally north of Kalispell to vote for Republican Senate candidate Matt Rosendale as a fiscal conservative who would "stand with the president every day."

With the campaign barreling toward its Tuesday conclusion, Tester was holding rallies in Missoula and Great Falls with House candidate Kathleen Williams and Gov. Steve Bullock

The Democrat is touting the need for health coverage for preexisting conditions and his work on veterans.

Pence's appearance caps an intensive White House campaign to defeat Tester in retribution for the lawmaker derailing Trump's choice for Veteran Affairs secretary.

Most polls open at 7 a.m.

Vice President Mike Pence is headlining a rally for State Auditor Matt Rosendale in northwestern Montana as the Republican's bid to unseat Democratic incumbent Sen. Jon Tester barrels toward its conclusion.

Meanwhile, Tester is holding rallies in Missoula and Great Falls Monday with House candidate Kathleen Williams.

Pence's appearance at Glacier Park International Airport north of Kalispell marks his third trip to Montana this election cycle to campaign for Rosendale and Republican U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte.

It's the final piece of an intensive White House campaign to defeat Tester and install Trump loyalist Rosendale after the Democrat scuttled President Donald Trump's choice for Veteran Affairs secretary.

The two-term senator has sought to deflect Trump's verbal attacks against him and promote his centrist credentials.

Most polls open Tuesday at 7 a.m.
