Campaign aides had their final chance to attack their opponents and argue who was really ahead in what battleground state on the Sunday talk shows. Everyone fought over Pennsylvania, and the Democrats think they've got Virginia and Florida in the bag.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel went on CNN's State of the Union ahead of this week's election. While some people are worried the Democrats might be losing Pennsylvania to the Republicans, Emanuel isn't worried. "I think Pennsylvania is secure," he told host Candy Crowley. "I’ve seen other polls that have the president in a comfortable margin," he said. "But it comes down to a four-letter word: jobs." He also defended the President's handling of the Benghazi situation and shot down Rudy Giuliani's ridiculous call for the President to resign. "The president has done exactly what a president should do," Emmanuel said. He said he was confident the President would find the perps and bring them to justice. "Let's not politicize this," he continued. "Get the investigation done. Let the chips fall where they may... If mistakes were made in any other agency, fix it."
Obama senior adviser David Axelrod was dispatched to appear on Fox News Sunday. He, too, doesn't see Romney as a legitimate threat in Ohio, and dismissed the notion Romney was surging in swing states while making fun of the Republican's latest ad campaign. "They understand that they're in deep trouble," Axelrod said. "They've tried to expand the map because they know in states like Ohio... They're behind and they're not catching up at this point." Axelrod pointed to Romney's recent Florida and Virginia trips as signs they aren't doing well in traditionally Republican areas. "They understand that the traditional, or the battleground, states that we've been focusing are not working out for them," Axelrod said. "Now they're looking for somewhere, desperately looking for somewhere." In particular, Axelrod is confident the President is going to take Virginia on Tuesday. "I feel very good about Virginia, and I think we're going to win Virginia," he said. "We had a great rally in Virginia last night. It's going to be close. That's one of the earlier reporting states we're going to be looking at."
