MILWAUKEE -- The candidates in the most crucial state race gave their final pitches to undecided voters on Monday.
 
Democrat Russ Feingold is trying to unseat incumbent Republican Senator Ron Johnson.
 
Feingold made a stop in Racine thanking United Auto Workers making calls to support him.
 
Johnson was with House Speaker Paul Ryan and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch using a Lutheran Milwaukee school as an example of how they want to provide Wisconsin parents more choices in education. 
 
Johnson went after his competitor's record.
 
"You know how much the balance has grown since he voted against the balanced budget amendment? $14 trillion. [Feingold] voted for tax increases 278 times,"Johnson said.
 
"He should look at what the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel PolitiFacts, they said it was false and it is false," Feingold said.
 
The latest Marquette University Law School Poll shows Feingold is now leading incumbent senator by one point.
