A look inside the final day of the Hillary Clinton campaign (KTRK)

Clinton's campaign headquarters is here, her massive election night party has been set up for days, but the candidate herself is nowhere in sight. As she has for days, Clinton will spend Monday keeping up a dizzying schedule with four rallies in three battleground states.

She starts her day at noon near Pittsburgh -- one of two stops today in all-important Pennsylvania.

Then on to the suburbs of Detroit -- a stop viewed by some as proof she needs to shore up a traditionally blue presidential state.

After that, Secretary Clinton will join her husband, daughter, President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi for a rally at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. It is not her final event, but likely to be the final one many voters see as it is timed to coincide with local newscasts across America.

Her final stop of the evening is in Raleigh, North Carolina, which will likely extend past midnight and into Election Day. After that, the campaign says she will fly home to suburban New York City for rest before watching returns with thousands of supporters in lower Manhattan's Javits Convention Center. Her party is hosted in a massive hangar-style room with an actual glass-ceiling. ABC13 will be there live election night.

Hanging over each stop is FBI Director James Comey's decision that the bureau's newest email review did not yield new results. In his view, Comey wrote Clinton still should not be charged. The campaigns were fueled over the decision and fallout on Monday's morning shows.

National polls on election eve show Clinton with a small lead.

Tuesday marks Clinton's 576th day as a candidate. According to statistics compiled by a travel-weary team at ABC News, Clinton has visiting 37 states (plus DC and Puerto Rico) for more than 278 rallies. While that number is big, she has held more than 350 fundraisers in the same time.

That has been her primary focus in the handful of visits she has made to Texas during this campaign. According to a compilation of Federal Election Commission reports by OpenSecrets.org, Clinton has done well in Houston. She has out-raised Trump in Houston's most politically generous areas by a sizable margin.
