(Newser) – Mitt Romney and President Obama are taking two very different approaches on how they'll spend their last few hours as candidates, reports CNN. Obama will follow presidential candidate tradition and hunker down in his hometown of Chicago to await an outcome, as well as his personal tradition of playing a little basketball. He'll also do a couple of satellite interviews. The Republican nominee, meanwhile, is breaking with tradition in a sprint to the end, with last-minute rallies planned in Cleveland and Pittsburgh, and radio interviews in Virginia and Ohio, reports ABC News. Romney voted this morning in Belmont, Mass., with wife Ann and son Tagg.
