Back in the surprise swing state of North Carolina, Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama says his campaign is "six days away from changing America."
The Illinois senator told thousands of supporters in downtown Raleigh that his campaign is less than a week away from turning the page on Republican policies, such as those held by rival candidate John McCain.
Obama's rally at Halifax Mall drew tens of thousands of supporters.
A new Associated Press-GfK poll released Wednesday shows Obama and McCain about even with a week before Election Day.
Both candidates are pressing hard to win the state's 15 electoral votes. Obama's visit Wednesday is his seventh visit to the state. His wife Michelle is campaigning in Rocky Mount and Fayetteville, where McCain held a rally Tuesday.
