As the race for President enters it's final month the campaign trail is heating up.

Barack Obama unleashed new ads attacking John McCain 's health care plan. McCain took the day off, but his VP choice Sarah Palin went on the offensive.

As time ticks closer to when Americans will choose their next President, Barack Obama spent his Saturday afternoon in Virginia.

The Democratic candidate held a rally in Newport News.....focusing on health care.

Senato Barack Obama, (D) Illinois, Democratic Presidential Nominee says, "My plan will cover all Americans. And unlike Senator McCain, I’ll do it by building on and strengthening – rather than dismantling – our current, workplace-based system."

Obama also released several new ads that target John McCain on the same subject.

McCain is taking a brief break from the campaign trail. He has no scheduled events this weekend while he rests in Sedona, Arizona and prepares for his second debate with Obama on Tuesday.

His running mate, Sarah Palin, held a rally at a 13 thousand seat tennis stadium in Carson California. She went on the offensive against Obama.

Governor Sarah Palin, (R) Alaska, Vice-Presidential Nominee,
"I've got some news for Senators Obama and Biden, for millions of Californians, this is still Reagan Country. And we're here to take it back."

Now that Congress and President Bush have approved the financial bailout package, the candidates are focusing some of their attention on other issues.

But with the U.S. possibly in a recession, the economy is still expected to be the issue that remains at the heart of this campaign with just a month left before voters head to the polls.
