(CNN) - Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are wrapping up their push in Pennsylvania with sharp attacks a day before the state's crucial primary.

Both candidates have been launching waves of robocalls, tough mailers and matching attack ads, spending an estimated hundreds of thousands of dollars a day.

Obama on Monday is scheduled to make his final stops in McKeesport and Pittsburgh, where Clinton has been strong.

    Way to go Senator Clinton. I believe you are ahead in double digits. Remember, this is CNN reporting this. They have always favored Obama. So go figure. Pennsylvania voters will show their candidate and nominee to be Hillary Clinton. Time for Senator Obama to go away. He is constantly negative besides being arrogant and condescending; people are turned off by that. Hillary Clinton is the strongest candidate to beat John McCain. Keep up the good work Senator Clinton. We are behind you 100% GO HILLARY 08!!!!!!!!!!

    SOME OF THESE OBAMA SUPPORTERS DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. # 1. OBAMA NEVER VOTED ON THE WAR BECAUSE HE WAS NOT IN THE SENATE AT THE TIME. # 2 BILL CLINTON WAS NEVER IMPEACHED. IMPEACHMENT CHARGES WERE BROUGHT AGAINST HIM BUT HE WAS NEVER CONVICTED. # 3 WHY ALL THE HILLARY HATERS? SOME OF THESE NUTS TALK LIKE THEY ACTUALLY KNOW HER PERSONALLY.

    In their comments, people have been continuously bashing W. Bush. But, it seems that they have forgotten that they actually elected W. Bush. Did they try to say that they have made same mistake twice in a row to elect a wrong person? If so, don’t make the same mistake three times in a row. Pick someone with low risk.

    Latest Gallup poll thru this weekend shows Obama with the lead!! I guess tomorrow will be the true test, though…Remember, the founding fathers of our country were 'inexperienced' yet their hopes, aspirations and willingness to change the status quo turned out quite well!! Go Obama voters of PA!!!!

    Obama= 20 years of mentoring by Rev Wright

    Hillary = a lifetime of service to America

    It is not a matter of how much we like a person, but of who can solve the problems faced by our nation. The best answer is Hillary and we know it.

    Let us make the right choice and vote for:

    Hillary- President of the United States of America
