DES MOINES, Iowa--Monday the Democrats spread out to talk to Iowans in the final hours before the polls open Tuesday morning.

The Democratic nominee for Gov. and Lt. Gov. Jack Hatch and Monica Vernon rolled into Indianola to greet supporters as part of their Fresh Start tour.

“This is an opportunity for us to get away from the stale leadership of the past and really looking and working a new Iowa,” says Hatch.

The pair has spent the past six days visiting 38 Iowa cities hoping to drum up last-minute support, ending their tour Monday night in Des Moines.

Vernon said the past 18 months of campaigning has proved their leadership is what Iowans need.

“We support building Iowa from the communities up, how important that is. That all communities matter from big city neighborhoods to small towns that everybody does have a future and we need to invest in our people. There`s a lot of work to be done and I think we`re the team to do it,” says Vernon.

Fellow Democrat Bruce Braley was also hitting the campaign trail in Eastern Iowa Monday.

Braley was joined by the man he hopes to replace, Sen. Tom Harkin.

The two made stops in Fort Madison and Keokuk.

Braley says his ground game will lead to a win on election night.

“Incredible volunteers who are signing up in record numbers, making tens of thousands of phone calls and knocking on doors and its paying off,” says Braley.
