MADISON, Wis. (AP) - President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are storming into the final day of their long presidential contest, mounting one last effort to protect their flanks while engaging in the toughest battleground of all - Ohio.
The two campaigns are ready to leave matters in the hands of voters and their schedules leave little doubt of where the election will be won or lost. Obama's holding rallies in Wisconsin and Iowa. Romney is cutting a broader swath, with events in Florida, Virginia and New Hampshire.
But the richest prize is Ohio, and today both Obama and Romney will rally their supporters in Columbus, the state capital.
