  • Obama campaigned Saturday in Nevada, Colorado and Missouri, all states that voted for President Bush four years ago, while McCain struggled to keep Virginia from voting for a Democratic presidential candidate for the first time since 1964.
  • Vice President Dick Cheney endorsed McCain.
  • Obama said McCain had earned the endorsement through supporting the Bush administration’s failed social and economic policies.
  • “Bush and Cheney have dug a deep hole,” Obama said. “Now they’re trying to hand the shovel to McCain.”

  • McCain’s campaign says its internal polling shows the gap closing.
