NEW YORK (CNN) – Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin will campaign in grand total of 11 states on Monday in their last push in the race for the White House.

McCain will attend seven rallies across the country, coast-to-coast, starting the day in Tampa, Florida with a rally at 9:00 a.m. ET. He then travels to Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Indiana, New Mexico, and Nevada for Road to Victory rallies and ends the night in Arizona. The last rally of the night will be at midnight (local time) in Prescott, Arizona on the front steps of the Yavapai County Courthouse. It’s the same place where former Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater ended his presidential campaign in 1964.

Palin will hold rallies in Ohio, Missouri, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada. Following her rally in Elko, Nevada Monday night, Palin will fly to her home state of Alaska to vote on Tuesday morning in Wasilla.

(CNN) - During the vice presidential debate, Joe Biden claimed that John McCain and Barack Obama voted "the exact same way" on a non-binding resolution that the Republican nominee’s campaign has said proposed raising taxes on individuals earning as little as $42,000 per year.

But as McCain staffers rushed to point out, McCain did not vote - either yea or nay - on those proposals, according to Senate voting records.
