CHICAGO (AP) - President Barack Obama is making a final campaign swing before Tuesday's midterm elections, asking Democratic voters to go to the polls and help stem an expected Republican tide.
After stops in Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Illinois, he's heading to Ohio.
Yesterday, Obama shouted himself hoarse at a large rally in Chicago, exhorting the crowd to show Republicans they not forgotten that the recession hit during George W. Bush's presidency. He repeated his theme that the election is a choice between the policies that caused the problems and policies that will lead the country to better times.
Obama is scheduled to headline a final rally in Cleveland today before returning to Washington for Halloween with his family, military families and other children invited to the White House.
