JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Barack Obama says he's "one day away from changing the United States of America."
On the eve of the election, the Illinois senator sounded confident but said he expects Tuesday's outcome will be close. He told Florida voters that the election will go to whoever "wants it more" and urged his supporters to work hard in the next 24 hours "like our future depends on it."
At the Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Obama noted that his Republican rival John McCain had campaigned there a few weeks ago and said the "fundamentals of our economy are strong." When the crowd jeered the idea, Obama told them, "You don't need to boo, you just need to vote."
