Both candidates are wrapping up last round campaigns days before the election.  While President Barack Obama is scheduled to return to Ohio on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  Republican candidate Mitt Romney is slated to campaign in Ohio, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Colorado and Pennsylvania.

Statewide polls released Thursday differed on who was ahead in Colorado and Iowa, but they showed Obama with a single-digit lead in Nevada and Wisconsin. Eight of nine surveys over the past week in crucial Ohio gave Obama a narrow edge.

Obama received an unexpected endorsement from New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a Republican-turned-independent and endorsement by Republican, former secretary of State Colin Powell, who praised the president’s record and urged Americans to “keep on the track that we are on.”

“We know what the future requires,” Obama, sporting a bomber jacket, told an airport rally in Green Bay, Wis. “We don’t need a big-government agenda or a small-government agenda. We need a middle-class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility.”
