For Republican candidate Governor Randy Brock, Monday meant eight stops in 11 hours -- from Swanton to Springfield.
"Then we did a sign wave on Shelburne Road in South Burlington, and from there we went to the Blue Line Diner in Colchester, and now we're here at Maplefield's in Colchester," Brock said.
Brock said it's his final push to sway the undecided. And he said it's a time to show his gratitude. "And also to thank so many of the supporters and volunteers who have been out working on my campaign very, very hard for the past couple of months," he said.
And it was a similar story for Governor Peter Shumlin, who pounded the pavement in Essex Junction Monday morning, stopping for photo ops at local businesses. "Vermonters expect to see their Governor. I love being out. I'm not one who sits in the office much. I get my best information, whether it's an election time or serving as governor, by listening to Vermonters," he said.
An internal poll recently released by Brock's camp said the candidate is closing the gap and now trails Shumlin by just five percentage points. The last public poll back in August showed Shumlin was 34-points ahead.
"You know the only poll I believe is the one that happens on election day tomorrow," Shumlin said.
Regardless of the outcome, Brock said he's looking forward to a break from campaigning come Wednesday morning."I think obviously a lot of the pressure and the intensity of the last few days of the campaign -- it will be nice to sleep late, til 6-6:30," he said.
Both candidates have full schedules for Tuesday -- bouncing from poll to poll to thank people for their votes.
