Obama, Romney Hold Final Rallies

Less than 24 hours before the first polls open on Election Day, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney held their final campaign rallies. Both candidates appeared in Columbus, Ohio, the capital city of what’s predicted to be one of the race’s most crucial swing states. Romney also appeared in Florida, Virginia, and New Hampshire. “Tomorrow, we begin a new tomorrow,” Romney told supporters in Columbus. Jay-Z and Bruce Springsteen hit the stage at Obama’s Ohio rally. “I’ve got 99 problems, but Mitt ain’t one,” the hip-hop star rapped, subbing Romney’s name for a more derogatory five-letter word. The Boss accompanied Obama on his flight back to Washington. “That’s not a bad way to bring it home,” the president said.
