Four days now until voters head to the polls, and Indiana's candidates for Senate and Governor are criss-crossing the state.

One of them is on his way to Mt. Vernon from Evansville -- right now.

Democratic Candidate for Governor John Gregg just wrapped up a campaign stop in downtown Evansville.

The latest polls show Gregg closing in on Republican front-runner Mike Pence.

Two polls are painting very different pictures of who is leading the Indiana Senate race.

It was the statement heard around the country.

"I think that even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen," said Republican Senate Candidate Richard Mourdock.

Now, the latest Howey/Depauw University Battleground poll released Friday puts Mourdock 11 points behind Democratic Candidate Joe Donnelly with a three and a half point margin of error.

"We're just going to work nonstop and talk to voters all over the state and talk to them about good jobs," Mourdock said.

Friday night, a Mourdock internal poll gives Mourdock a one point lead, with an error margin of four points.

'We've gotten absolutely hammered," said Democratic Senate Candidate Joe Donnelly. "Frankly, to see that we're no worse than even right now, we're very pleased with those numbers."

In the Governor's race, polls show the two candidates neck and neck.

Democrat John Gregg made stops Friday in Boonville, Evansville, on his way to Mt. Vernon.

His rival, Republican Candidate Mike Pence was in Lafayette before working his way to Valparaiso.

"We're just determined to go out and earn the vote. Which is going to be our focus on what remains of this election," said Pence.

Both candidates claiming victory ahead of Tuesday's general election.

"I am proud to tell you that we are workhorses," said Gregg. "I am proud to tell you we are going to win this race. We are closing. We are in the margin of error."

Both sides of the aisle are watching the Indiana Senate race, because it could determine whether Republicans win control in the senate.

You can still vote early inside the elections office at the Civic Center until noon Monday.

So far, nearly 27,000 people in Vanderburgh County have already cast their ballots.

Polls open at 6 a-am on election day.
