(Newser) – John McCain and Barack Obama both made final pushes today, trying to invigorate voters in battleground states, the Chicago Tribune reports. McCain hit Colorado, hotly contested, and told supporters. “I feel momentum, I feel it. We're going to win it.” Obama also went next door. “I think we can win Indiana, otherwise I wouldn't be in Indiana,” he said.

Both candidates will be at home tonight to watch returns. In addition to his Colorado trip, McCain made the rounds of Washington talk shows via satellite from Arizona, displaying a wistful note. “I'm kind of sorry that it's over because it's been exciting,” he said. Obama, too, planned remote interviews from Chicago, and add a sporting respite: playing basketball, which he does every election day.
