Democrat Barack Obama carried on Tuesday with an outdoor rally at Widener University, outside Philadelphia, despite miserable weather.
A cold, steady rain made it feel like the temperature was
right around freezing.
It was the same kind of weather that halted the fifth game of the World Series in Philadelphia on Monday night, the first such suspension in the history of the baseball championship.
Several thousand people came out to hear Obama.
Obama told the shivering crowd, "I just want all of you to know
that if we see this kind of dedication on Election Day, there is no
way that we're not going to bring change to America."
Meanwhile, republican John McCain and running mate Sarah Palin are also sweeping through battleground Pennsylvania as polls show them trailing the Democratic ticket, but McCain says it's wonderful to fool the pundits and is vowing to pull an upset.
McCain told supporters in Hershey, Pa., on Tuesday that, in his own words: "I'm not afraid of the fight. I'm ready for it."
The Arizona senator continued a sharp assault on Democratic
rival Barack Obama during a noisy rally in Hershey.
Palin defended their campaign's harsh attacks on Obama.
The Alaska governor says Obama is not being candid about his tax
plans, and she says that it's not mean-spirited or negative to call out someone on his record.
