Volunteers Work To Get Out Every Last Vote

Rick Christie is every candidate’s dream volunteer. He sports buttons, he speaks with passion, and he puts in his time.

"Hello, David. My name is Rick. I’m working for the Romney campaign. How are ya?"

Christie is in Manchester, going door to door for Mitt Romney. He estimates he’s knocked on about 2000 doors since June. Of course, not all go well.

Polls still show a near dead heat between Romney and President Obama in New Hampshire.

And that means it could come down to volunteers like Christie… \making phone calls and knocking on doors for their preferred candidate, right through Tuesday.
