Romney campaign focused on Ohio and Pennsylvania

in Uncategorized by

Romney officials tell National Review that the campaign “is focused on two key states as Election Day nears: Ohio and Pennsylvania. They believe that they are competitive in Ohio, but should it drift away, they’re looking at Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes as a possible substitute for the Buckeye State.”

Said a Romney adviser: “We have got to win one of those two states and do well everywhere else. We’re still pushing in Ohio, but it’s unpredictable. Pennsylvania, however, is really in play.”

Romney’s final-day schedule — he will campaign in Pittsburgh and Cleveland — reflects his strategy.
