Last Minute Campaigning Before Super Tuesday

February 4, 2008

It's definitely a horse race for the Democrats in the home stretch to Super Tuesday.

A just released CBS News poll shows Barack Obama has erased Hillary Clinton's double digit lead and drawn dead even.

And that isn't lost on Mrs. Clinton. She hit the road early Monday morning looking to regain her lead. She began in Connecticut, and will stop in Massachusetts before ending her busy day with an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Obama was in New Jersey Monday morning, stumping for votes in a key state that the experts say could go either way Tuesday.

On the GOP side, the latest CBS News poll gives John McCain a commanding lead over Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee.

But the Arizona Senator has been around long enough to know the race isn't over yet.

"We are guardedly confident, we think we can win, but that is why we are campaigning hard until polls close," said McCain.

Romney was in Nashville Monday morning, still very upbeat. He's busy trying to convince voters he is the conservative choice.

"I think they want a person who stands for conservative principles and for strengthening our nation, I do, I will and I intend to win," said Romney.

But Romney's biggest hurdle at the moment might be Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who's capturing a chunk of the conservative vote.
