    Post Question: the final stretch of the election campaign

    Example.
    The party leaders are in the final stretch of the election campaign as markets continued to crash around the world. We have a series of reports from our reporters traveling with the leaders.

    Question.
    What a stretch means?
    So, how I understand a underline part?

    It's metaphor from horse racing. "The final stretch" is the last straight part of the racetrack that goes past the winning post. Also called the "home stretch". Rivers also have stretches - distinctive parts of a river.
