CBS Evening News with Katie Couric E-Mail Alert


Hi everyone,


The long marathon of Campaign ’08 has now become a sprint to Election Day. And each candidate plans to visit seven – yes SEVEN – states in the remaining four days. Barack Obama is keeping his focus on the economy as he tries to widen his lead in the polls. Dean Reynolds has the latest on the Obama campaign.


Meanwhile, John McCain is pouring money into a last round of TV ads in a final push. And he received help on the campaign trail in Ohio this morning from former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani. Chip Reid has more from the trail.


If the enormous lines that have formed at early-voting stations across the country are any indication, this election could have a record turnout. But the question is: Can the system – both man and machine – handle it? Armen Keteyian investigates.


As part of our close look at the key swing states, Jeff Greenfield ventured to New Mexico, the state that calls itself The Land of Enchantment. But Jeff gives it a new moniker: "The land of the photo finish." He'll explain, tonight.


Finally, for this week's Assignment America, Steve Hartman takes our cameras along on his search for … The Great Pumpkin. You won't want to miss what he found.


Also … the big night is nearing, and I hope you'll join us for our special Election Night broadcast. We'll be live all Tuesday evening to give you up-to-the minute results from the CBS News Polling Unit. And keep the coffee handy – we'll be following our coverage with a special 2 a.m. Webcast that you can watch right here or at our partner in digital coverage,


Have a great weekend!

Katie Couric
