GOP hopes last-minute push will win Wis. for McCain

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- With John McCain behind in the polls in Wisconsin, Republicans say their best chance at victory is through a final 72-hour push to get his supporters to vote.

The Republicans are sending 150 volunteers from other states to help out in Wisconsin. They will join about 7,000 local volunteers to contact voters over the phone and at their doors as part of what the GOP is calling the "72 Hour Task Force."

Republicans credit their strong get-out-the-vote effort in 2004 with helping make the race close in Wisconsin and say the operation has improved since then.

But Democrats say they are confident Barack Obama's impressive organization in Wisconsin will deliver the state for the Illinois senator.
