Just when you thought the campaign was over, it’s not.
Republican Mitt Romney, campaigning across five states today on the eve of the Nov. 6 presidential election, is adding two Election Day stops to his itinerary.
Romney plans another lap in Cleveland, Ohio, the state which has been essential to any Republican’s hopes of winning the White House.
And he will travel to Pittsburgh, in a state that has long been considered an easy win for President Barack Obama — no Republican has carried the heavily Democratic Pennsylvania since 1988. Romney is attempting to broaden his electoral base, with polls portraying a narrowing race in Pennsylvania. A surprise victory there could help offset a win for Obama in Ohio.
The former Massachusetts governor had planned to head home to Boston tonight to await the election results. The added Election Day appearances are a measure of leaving no stones un-turned in a race which national polls portray as a statistical tie.
