Republican presidential nominee John McCain sparred with Tom Brokaw on Meet the Press on Sunday, while his Democratic opponent Barack Obama addressed a rally in Denver. Host Andrea Seabrook has a roundup of the latest from each campaign.


From NPR News, it's All Things Considered. I'm Andrea Seabrook.

Senator JOHN MCCAIN (Republican, Arizona; 2008 Republican Presidential Nominee): We're doing fine. We have closed in the last week. If we continue this closer next week, you're going to be up very, very late on election night.

SEABROOK: John McCain on NBC's "Meet the Press," today. He insisted that he's not trailing Barack Obama as badly as some polls show. Meanwhile, Obama urged crowds in Denver to take advantage of Colorado's early voting.

Senator BARACK OBAMA (Democrat, Illinois; 2008 Democratic Presidential Nominee): No point waiting in lines if you don't have to. You know who you're going to vote for.
