If Cincinnati cookie sales are any indication, the contest between President Obama and Mitt Romney does indeed remain close in Ohio.

Reporters traveling with Romney arrived in Dayton, Ohio, midday to be greeted with cookies with hand-decorated Romney faces painted onto a white fondant covering the top of each one, with a delightful almond aftertaste.

CBS’ pool reporter, Sarah Huisengas, looked into the cookie story and shared that the maker, Busken Bakery, has eight locations around Cincinnati and one in northern Kentucky.
