U.S. presidential candidates focus on states their parties lost in 2004

  With the U.S. Election less than a day away, the two presidential candidates are busy campaigning in states their respective parties lost in 2004.

John McCain, the Republican nominee who is trailing in the national polls, was making appearances in two states that voted Democratic in 2004; Pennsylvania and New Hampshire.

McCain criticised Obama's tax plan in Pennsylvania on Sunday.

"If I'm elected president, I won't spend nearly a trillion dollars more of your money. Senator Obama will, and he can't do that without raising your taxes or taking us further into debt."

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama spent Sunday speaking at rallies in the largest cities in Ohio. In 2000 and 2004, a win for the Democrats in Ohio would have changed the outcome.

Speaking to a huge crowd at a rally in Cincinnati, in the pivotal state of Ohio, Obama said this was "a defining moment in history."

"In two days, Ohio, at this defining moment in history, you can give this country the change we need, and it starts right here in Ohio, right here in Cincinnati, this is where we need to make it happen."

About 27 million absentee and early votes were cast in 30 states as of Saturday. Democrats outnumbered Republicans in pre-Election Day voting in key states. This is the highest number of early votes recorded in US election history.
