NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — President Barack Obama is telling supporters in tiny New Hampshire that "these four electoral votes right here could make the difference."
Ahead of a rally in Nashua, Obama stopped in at a Teamsters hall where campaign volunteers were chanting "fired up, ready to go." Obama told them: "We don't know how this thing is going to play out," and stressed the importance of winning in the state.
Obama's campaign is pressing forward with a get-out-the-vote effort that aides say has them leading or tied in every competitive state. And the president is warning supporters that skipping out on voting could cost him the election.
The push for early voting is coming with a caution. Campaign spokesman Jennifer Psaki (SAH'-kee) says with Hurricane Sandy on a collision course with two wintry weather systems that could batter the East Coast with heavy rain, wind and even snow in the coming days, "safety comes first."
