The candidates who have been working for Hoosiers' support this year made their closing arguments Monday and urged people to get out the vote in Tuesday's election.
Local Republicans started the morning by packing into Stevie's Unique Treats, a cafe in downtown Mishawaka, to rally for the party's congressional and gubernatorial hopefuls.
They chanted for Jackie Walorski, who is running against Democrat Brendan Mullen and Libertarian Joe Ruiz in the state's 2nd Congressional District, and cheered for Mike Pence, who is running against Democrat John Gregg and Libertarian Rupert Boneham to be Indiana's next governor.
"Let me just remind you of one thing -- as if we don't know -- it all comes down to getting out the vote tomorrow," Walorski told the group. "I am asking you on behalf of our great new governor standing here to go home and call five people, and tell them to vote tomorrow. ... "
"We have an opportunity to turn our nation around, folks, and lead in the 2nd District in the state of Indiana," she said. "But we've got to vote. We've got to get our voters to the polls."
Pence followed Walorski by saying, "I hope every one of you leaves here today with a burden on your heart that whatever you've done before, do more.
"Whatever phone calls you've made before, make more. Whatever doors you've knocked on before, do more," he said. "This is the moment. Now is the time."
A few hours later, Gregg's running mate for lieutenant governor, Vi Simpson, stopped by St. Joseph County Democrats' headquarters to thank volunteers.
Mullen, U.S. Senate candidate Joe Donnelly and Evan Bayh, the former governor and senator, met an excited crowd Monday night at the party's downtown South Bend building.
"We have one more day to work nonstop," said Donnelly, who is running against Republican Richard Mourdock and Libertarian Andrew Horning.
"I look out and I see all my friends, the friends of a lifetime," he said. "To all of you, please know your work -- your nonstop effort -- is what's going to make sure that tomorrow night I'll be the next United States senator."
Mullen, who was a kicker on the Army football team in college, used a football analogy.
"We've marched the ball all the way down the field and, ladies and gentlemen, we are sitting on the goal line," he said.
"One more day," he continued. "If I can ask you to push a little bit harder, I'll tell you what: I'm not gonna take any downs off. I know my good friend Joe is not gonna take any downs off in the next day. Let's get over the goal line into the end zone."
