LA CROSSE, Wis. -

Tommy Thompson did some last-minute campaigning in La Crosse Monday.

Thompson toured Mid-City Steel with Governor Scott Walker. It's part of a four-city blitz for Thompson that included stops in Eau Claire, Wausau, and Green Bay.

Thompson says he feels confident about this race even though the polls are close. "The polls are not picking up the enthusiasm on our side, every place we went, there were huge crowds, whether it be Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon, Sunday morning, Sunday afternoon or Sunday night when we ended up in Milwaukee, they are pumped up. They want to get out and make the telephone calls and knock on doors, and get people to the polls, I'm feeling very optimistic about tomorrow," said Thompson.

Meanwhile, Democrat Tammy Baldwin also made a swing around the state. She joined President Obama at a rally in Madison this morning before heading to the Fox Valley.

Baldwin spoke in front of an estimated 18,000 people at the rally which could be a boost for her.

Baldwin incorporated some of President Obama's message into her speech. "And I know tomorrow we will vote to continue moving Wisconsin and America forward, forward with a strong middle class, forward on a path to shared prosperity," said Baldwin.
