Obama, Romney campaign in final hours


With just one day left until Election Day, the candidates are making their final push.

President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney are spreading their messages in states across the country, including in Wisconsin.

For the President, his final full day of campaigning started in Wisconsin.

In Madison, he told more than 18,000 people what they need to do with less than a day to go.

"Knock on some doors with me. Make some phone calls for me. Turn out for me. We will win Wisconsin, we'll win this election, we'll finish what we started," Obama said.

For Republican Mitt Romney, his four-state trip included a stop in Florida.

"Tomorrow, we being a new tomorrow. Tomorrow, we begin a better tomorrow. This nation is going to begin to change for the better tomorrow," Romney said.

It's also a chance for each candidate to make their closing arguments to the country, and try to persuade those few undecided voters left.

"I say what I mean and I mean what I say. I said I'd end the war in Iraq, and I ended it. I said I'd pass healthcare reform, I passed it. I said I'd repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell, I repealed it," President Obama said.

"This is much more than our moment. It's America's moment of renewal and purpose and optimism. And we've journeyed far and wide in this great campaign for America's future and now we're almost home," Romney said.

Romney and Obama visited six states combined. The vice presidential candidates were also busy—as this race comes down to the final hours.

Romney's campaign has announced stops on Election Day. No word yet on if President Obama will do the same.
