Congressman Mark Schauer has been campaigning non stop for the past few days. In fact, he barely took time off to talk with us Tuesday afternoon.

The congressman said this last-minute push by himself and his volunteers does make a difference.

"I was just in McDonald's in Jackson talking with a man who hadn't voted," Schauer said, "and he didn't really know the issues."

Tim Walberg's campaign would have to agree, volunteers at his Jackson campaign office hit the phones Tuesday.

"It's a culmination of all our efforts here in the office making phone calls, plus last minute get out the vote efforts, we're having people go door to door," Kent Sholars, Walberg's campaign manager, said.

Walberg himself stayed at his Lenawee County home Tuesday. His campaign manager said he was making calls from there.

"Surprisingly a lot of people do wait until the last minute to make up their minds," Scholars said. "Voter contacts are crucial to the election."

In a close race, both candidates said every vote counts, and they'll work up to the last minute to get as many as they can.

"That's what I tell my volunteers," Schauer said. "I say, you talk to 20 people in the next two hours, you may personally make a difference in this election."
