Minnesota's U.S. Senate race is hitting metro hot spots this week.

On Wednesday, it was New York for Republican Mike McFadden. On Friday, Democratic Sen. Al Franken will travel to Chicago.

The reason for both trips? Cash.

McFadden was in New York City for a high dollar fundraiser with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Franken will travel to Chicago for a low-dollar fundraiser with Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin.

Both also have spent time campaigning in Minnesota this week.
