ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) -- Barack Obama may be ahead in the national polls, but John McCain is urging supporters in Missouri to keep fighting.
Several thousand showed up for a morning rally in suburban St. Louis. McCain told them while the polls show him "a few points down," the national media have written him off before and been wrong.
McCain returned to his economic theme, telling the crowd that Obama would bring a spread-the-wealth philosophy that would kill jobs and further damage the economy.
McCain is making a number of stops today across Missouri, where polls show him/ and Obama in a virtual tie. The candidates and their surrogates have been making a number of visits to the states in recent days.
