The campaigns are calling

The robocalls have kicked in for the final stretch of the campaign.

On Tuesday, the Clinton campaign hit likely voters with a message stressing the economy, health care for all and affordable higher education.

In the call, Hillary Clinton said as president she'll bring 35 years of experience "solving big problems and bringing real change."

Added Clinton: "I will stand up for you and bring real solutions to America starting Day 1. ... It's going to be close and I need your help."

Obama's campaign sent out robocalls Monday in which the senator urged listeners to join him in ending the war in Iraq, passing universal health care and "building an economy that works for everyone."

"The time is now for real change in America," Obama says in the call.

He reminded listeners of the poll hours, directed them to his Web site and mentioned his voter hotline.

"Let's go change the world," he says.

On Monday, calls went to American Federation of Teachers members. AFT President Edward McElroy said he wanted union members "to be sure you hear this important message from our good friend."

Hillary Clinton then told listeners that "together we can make the changes in public education, health care and the economy that will improve the lives of working families and strengthen our communities and country."

National AFT has been putting a lot of resources into Wisconsin, doing robocalls, mailers and radio ads promoting Clinton's candidacy.

Mike Huckabee sent an e-mail to supporters yesterday detailing efforts of his "Huckabee Rangers" to complete almost 26,000 "voter contact calls" to Wisconsin voters before 9 p.m. yesterday.
