President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney shake hands at the end of the third and final presidential debate on Oct. 22, 2012 at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida.

On the final day, both President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney have commended each other for a campaign well run.

Romney offered some  rare words of praise for his opponent today, during a stop at a campaign office in Green Tree, Pennsylvania.

“”This president has run a really a strong campaign. I believe he’s a good man,” Romney said. “But it’s time for a new direction.”

Obama, during a visit to one of his campaign offices in Chicago today to greet volunteers, said he knows Romney’s volunteers are as enthusiastic, and added: “I want to congratulate Governor Romney and his team for a hard fought race as well.”

Lisa Lerer and Margaret Talev reported from Pennsylvania and Chicago.
