Palin Makes Final Ohio Push
From CBS News' Scott Conroy:
(CANTON, OHIO) - Since becoming the Republican vice presidential nominee, Sarah Palin has spent more time in Ohio than any other state but Pennsylvania. On Sunday, she'll blanket the state one last time before Election Day, holding rallies in Canton, Marietta, Columbus and Batavia.
The amount of time Palin is spending in Ohio in the final days shows just how crucial the Republicans consider victory in the state to be. On Monday morning, the Alaska governor will hold one final Ohio rally in Lakewood, just outside Cleveland.
Most recent polls show the Democrats with a slight lead in Ohio, but Republicans have been heartened by a Mason/Dixon survey showing McCain gaining a two-point advantage over Obama.
Over the last couple of days, Palin has been sticking closely to the script — using the same language at every stop to hammer Obama over the Democrat's tax plan, rather than raising questions about his personal associations, as she has done many times in the past.
