Both presidential campaigns hit swing states hard. Clinton also made the rounds in Michigan, North Carolina and Pennsylvania – first for an appearance in Pittsburgh, then ending the night with the rally in Philadelphia. At the rally were her husband, former President Bill Clinton, as well as President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

Meanwhile, Republican nominee Donald Trump was also making a last-minute push with a whirlwind schedule included five states – Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, and Michigan.
