Candidates Staying Busy in the Final Hours

Posted: Updated:

Nationally, all the speeches, debates, ads, interviews, and polls have led to this moment -- but in a race that's too close to call, Romney and Obama remained quite busy today.

Many Americans faced long lines at the polls today in what could be one of the closest presidential elections in history, and it was far from a day off for the candidates.

President Obama dropped by a campaign field office in Chicago, thanking the workers there, and he also took a moment to thank his opponent, Mitt Romney, for what he called a "spirited campaign."

"I know that his supporters are just as engaged and just as enthusiastic and working just as hard today," President Obama commented. "We feel confident we've got the votes to win, but it's going to depend ultimately on whether those votes turn out."

After voting this morning in Delaware, Joe Biden flew to the important battleground state of Ohio, where he greeting voters at a restaurant in Cleveland. In a clear illustration of just how crucial Ohio is this year, Joe Biden's Air Force Two shared the tarmac in Cleveland with both Paul Ryan's and Mitt Romney's planes.

After voting in their home states, Romney and his running mate took one more swing through Ohio as part of a last-minute strategy that combined on-the-ground stops and remote radio interviews, all focused on getting out the vote.

As Romney explained: "I think people in Ohio know that they're probably going to decide who the next president's going to be -- there's a good shot of that happening -- so we all care very deeply about Ohio."

Every vote matters, and both campaigns are working to keep up momentum until the polls close.
