The race for the White House is tight as U.S. presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney crisscross the country ahead of Tuesday's election. At a rally in Virginia, Romney made an appeal for votes in a race that may come down to which side does the best job of getting its supporters to the polls. (SOUNDBITE) (English) REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE MITT ROMNEY SAYING: "This is the challenge which I have for you -- I need you to go out and convince people to get behind us, to vote, to join our team. One final push will get us there. I know that we can make it happen. We're so very very close." Polls show Obama and Romney are a deadlocked nationally after long, bitter and expensive campaigns - although Obama appears to have a slight edge in the swing states that could decide the election. In the crucial state of Ohio where he campaigned Sunday night, Obama had 48 percent to Romney's 44 percent. (SOUNDBITE) (English) PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA SAYING: "Now here's the thing Cincinnati, it turns out we know what change looks like and what Governor Romney is selling is not change. Giving power back to the biggest banks, that's not change. Another five trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy? Not change." Twice during the rally Obama was interrupted by anti-abortion protesters. A man on a balcony held a sign upside down that read "This moral wrong should never be a constitutional right." The protester was escorted out by police.
