Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin made a last pitch for votes Monday in Dubuque. "So Iowa, if you share our commitments and if you work hard, if you know what hard work feels like and you want to get ahead and if you believe that America is the land of possibilities and you don’t want your dreams dashed by the Obama tax plan increases , then Iowa we are asking for your vote tomorrow," Palin said.

About 5,000 gathered in Dubuque’s River Center and most stood for three hours, waiting for Palin’s mid-afternoon appearance. Palin’s Dubuque visit mirrors President George W. Bush’s Election Eve rally in Dubuque four years ago. Palin’s next stop: Colorado Springs.
