NC campaign's final day focuses on Tuesday turnout

Associated Press Published: November 5, 2012

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina candidates and presidential surrogates traveled the state on the campaign's final day trying to persuade the dwindling number of expected Election Day voters for support.

Michelle Obama held a Monday afternoon rally at the Charlotte airport to boost get-out-the-vote efforts for her husband's re-election bid for president. Barack Obama narrowly won the state's 15 electoral votes four years ago but faced a more resolute effort this year in the state for Mitt Romney.

Leading gubernatorial candidates Walter Dalton and Pat McCrory held their own rallies and did TV interviews.

More than half of the people likely to vote this election in North Carolina already have voted, so there were fewer members to reach.

Voters also are choosing members of Congress, the Legislature, Council of State and the courts.
