Thousands of empty seats for last Dem voter rally by Obama, Biden

CLEVELAND -- The arena where President Obama and Vice President Biden are making their final appeal to Democrats to get out and vote in Tuesday's midterm elections was far from capacity Sunday afternoon.

The crowd estimate stands at 8,000 in the arena that seats just over 13,000 and a couple thousand empty seats are visible above the stage where Obama and Biden rallied supporters.


The event is the final one in a series of "Moving America Forward" rallies aimed at ginning up enthusiasm with the party's largely deflated base ahead of Tuesday.

The president's final pitch to voters Sunday comes after hitting three states Saturday -- rallying Democrats in Pennsylvania, Connecticut and at an outdoor rally in Chicago on Saturday night.
