8 days to go until the election and the latest CNN poll of polls shows Sen. Barack Obama with an 8 point edge. But, Sen. John McCain says don't count him out.
"We're a few points down. The pundits they've written us off as they have several times before. My opponent is working out the details with Speaker Pelosi and Sen. Reid of their plans to raise your taxes, increase spending, and concede defeat in Iraq. He's measuring the drapes. And he's planned his first address to the nation for before the election. You know, I guess I'm old fashioned about these things. I'd prefer to let the voters weigh in before presuming the outcome," said McCain tonight in Pottsville, Pennsylvania.
Both Pennsylvania and Ohio got visits from the candidates today, and with good reason. Both states are in play this year. Each side wants to claim victory in the battleground states.
In Ohio, Obama warned his supporters against claiming victory.
"Don't believe for a second this election is over. Don't think for a minute that power concedes. We have a lot of work to do. We have to work like our future depends on it in this last week, because it does depend on it this week," Obama said.
Tonight on 360° we'll have the latest from the campaign trail.
CNN's Miles O'Brien will show us which states are in play in front of the magic map.
And, 360's Tom Foreman is tracking Obama's record cash flow. He's the first candidate to raise $660 million dollars. That's a million for every day since he announced his campaign. So, where is the money coming from? We're keeping them honest.
All that and more tonight on 360°.
Hope you'll join us at 10pm ET.
