plastered with campaign signs
and blaring energetic music.
Dingell said in an interview
before the event that this year's
election has had the strongest
Democratic effort to date.
"We have the best, most effec-
tive get-out-the-vote effort in this
district that I have seen in my
career," Dingell said.
He added that his campaign has
continued to work on garnering
support for all of the Democratic
candidates on the 2012 ballot.
"We are going to do everything
we can to re-elect every Democrat,
from President Obama down,"
Dingell said. "We're goingto see to

munity members filling the room,
emphasizing the importance of
affordable education, economic
equality and President Barack
Obama's health care reforms
Stabenow said the Obama
administration has been especially
important to the state of Michi-
gan because it stood with the auto
industry, bailing out Chrysler and
General Motors, when no one else
would. She added that the next
four years should be focused on the
population as a whole, and not just
special interest groups.
"Community is our strength,"
Stabenowsaid. "Caringabout other
people is a good thing."
Stabenow said that though
a slew of billionaires have been
funding the Republican campaign,
come Election Day, their influence
is restricted to their one vote.
"This is not an auction, this is an
election," Stabenow said.

In their last plea to Michigan
voters on Election Day Eve, in a
state that now seems less cer-
tain of a victory for President
Barack Obama, Republican offi-
cials here reined in their criti-
cisms of Obama and his failure
to stimulate the economy.,
Instead, they urged Michi-
gan voters to look to the state's
turnaround under Republican
Gov. Rick Snyder as a model
for the change to expect under
a possible Romney presidential
Rounding out a list of speak-
ers that included Republican
National Committee chair
Reince Priebus, Snyder - who
has presided over what he
claims to be a "reinvention" of
the state through a method of
"relentless positive action" -
said Romney's election would
amount to a continuation of the
state's economic recovery.
"We're on the path to a
major comeback," Snyder told
the crowd of about 150 people.
"Now is not the time to stop.
Tomorrow decides the choice,
are we going, to act or are we
going backwards? And we're
Bill Schuette, the state's
Republican Attorney General,
said that the successes of Snyder
should continue to be reflected
at the national level through the
election of Romney.
"In Michigan, we've turned it
around - we have an outstand-
ing governor, and an outstand-
ing lieutenant governor. And
if you think about the quali-
ties that Rick Snyder brought
to Michigan, they're the same
qualities that Mitt Romney will
bring to America."
The rally, which lasted about
45 minutes, comes as polls in
the state show a narrowing gap
between Obama, who has long
held a lead statewide, and Rom-
ney, who was raised in Bloom-
field Hills, Mich., while his
father George Romney served
as governor from 1963 to 1969.
As the candidates swung
through the roster of critical
states in the election's dying
hours, surrogates for both can-
didates have canvassed the
state, and both campaigns have
elevated their rhetoric.
Republican Lt. Gov. Brian
Calley, who preceded Snyder as
the second-to-last speaker, said
Michigan voters would prove
analysts wrong who have pre-
dicted a safe win in the state for
"I just can't wait for 8 o'clock
tomorrow to roll around, and
then 9 o'clock to come and 10
o'clock to come and all of a sud-

gan yet," Calley said. "They're

winning the presidency of the
At the rally, the Republican
speakers, again portrayed the
election as a choice between
two distinct visions for the.
country, following a trend ever
since both parties held their
nominating conventions earlier
Before U.S. Senatorial can-
didate Pete Hoekstra criticized
Obama for his handling of the
Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the
American consulate in Beng-
hazi, Libya, George Romney, a
nephew of the Republican presi-
dential nominee, told the audi-
ence Mitt Romney would fix the
economic woes he said Obama's
policies have only worsened.
George Romney recalled
an instance at the 2002 Win-
ter Olympics in Salt Lake City,
Utah, which Mitt Romney ran,
when he directed traffic when
a backlog of cars threatened to
prevent people from attending
some of the events.
He said the affair illustrates
that Mitt Romney has a knack
for stepping up through adver-
sityand seizing the moment.
At the rally here in Jackson,
and a stop in Ann Arbor attend-
ed by two of Mitt Romney's sons,
Matt and Josh Romney, an hour
earlier, members of the Uni-
versity's chapter of the College
Republicans said they thought
this was Romney's moment, and
that the candidate's strength in
Michigan would boost him to a
LSA senior Matt Jones, state
chair of Students for Romney,
said Priebus's appearance in
Michigan, as opposed to other
contested states like Pennsylva-
nia, shows that the state will be
closer than originally projected.
"We feel that Michigan's in
play, we really do. I know that
a lot of people are counting
out the state, but ... everyone is
acknowledging that Republi-
cans are far more energized to
vote than the Democrats are,"
Jones said in an interview after
the bus stop in Jackson. "We
think Michigan is absolutely in
play, and we think that if Michi-
gan goes red, then the whole
national election will probably
go our way."
Members of the College
Republicans at the Ann Arbor
stop were equally confident
about Romney's prospects.
LSA senior Brian Koziara,
a senior adviser to the group,
said after the event that the
group will continue to make
last-minute get out the vote
efforts, including making calls
during the duration of the eve-
ning at the Washtenaw County
"The work that they've been
doing to elect Mitt Romney and
Paul Ryan as president and vice
president and elect Republi-
cans up and down the ticket is
just momentous and we're real-
ly looking forward to a victory
tomorrow night," Koziara said.
While Snyder congratulated
voters on their work to elect
Romney over the past 18 months
of the campaign, he urged vot-
ers to work up until the closing
of the polls to ensure Romney's
"We need to go out of here
not just saying this is a rally, but
this was a rally that there's still
tomorrow," Snyder said.
