Trump and Clinton sprint to finish line

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) -

Donald Trump is making last-minute stops in traditionally blue states while Hillary Clinton is hoping a basketball star from Akron can push her ahead in Ohio just two days before the election.

Trump is staying mostly focused on the Midwest on Sunday with stops in Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Polls in Michigan — once thought to be solidly in Clinton's column — show a tightening race.

In a surprise move, Trump added Minnesota to his campaign schedule.

He finished a distant third in the state during the GOP primary, and a recently released Star Tribune Minnesota Poll showed Clinton with an eight-point lead.

"I've been here many times as you know. And Hillary, she doesn't even bother to come here," Trump said at an airport rally. "She should be penalized. Don't vote for her. She'd be a lousy president anyway."

Clinton appeared with NBA superstar and Northeast Ohio native Lebron James in Cleveland.

James endorsed Clinton last month but is making his first-ever appearance on the campaign trail.

"We have to get out and make sure we vote," James told the crowd. "We have to get out and be knowledgeable about what's going on, about what we see that our future entails. And this woman right here has the brightest future for our world."

The Democratic presidential nominee is also making a stop in Manchester, New Hampshire, with musician James Taylor.

The final national NBC News poll of the 2016 presidential race shows Clinton leading Trump by four points.

Clinton's campaign received some relief Sunday as FBI Director James Comey announced the additional review of emails hasn't changed the department's conclusion that the former secretary of state did not commit a crime by using a private e-mail server.
