Romney Will Campaign Tomorrow In OH, PA

Nov 5 2012, 5:57pm CST | by

Taking it down to the last minute

Although millions of people will have already cast their vote, Mitt Romney's ground game is still going to be active into the day tomorrow, with stops scheduled in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

"Look, we have one job left, and that’s to make sure that on Election Day, we make certain that everybody that’s qualified to vote gets out to vote," Romney said during a campaign rally today.

A victory in Pennsylvania would be incredible for Romney, but he really has his eyes set on Ohio, just like Obama does. Earlier today, both candidates were campaigning in the Buckeye State just a few miles apart from one another.

Ohio is always a key target in presidential campaigns, in part because it is a microcosm of the entire country. It isn't just about the fact that there are a lot of swing voters and because the state carries a nice prize of 18 electoral votes.

It is more about the fact that Ohio does truly represent the entire country, with cities like Columbus (which is home to many Fortune 500 companies and also has offices of some of the major financial institutions) very representative of big cities throughout the country, and rural areas acting like states in the middle of the country.

So the reason that Ohio's choice usually ends up being the country's choice isn't just because of the close electoral race but because of the true barometer that Ohio holds. The state has correctly chosen the winning candidate more times than any other state, by far.

The Fix: Who really started the impeachment ‘scam’? A timeline.

Jul 29 2014 12:35pm CDT | Source: Post Politics: - The Washington Post

"It's all a scam started by the Democrats at the White House," House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) insisted Tuesday when asked about impeaching President Obama. "Why? Because they are trying to rally their people to give money and to show up in this year's election." The latter part of that is true: Over the weekend, Democrats say they raised $2.1 million largely using the specter of an attempted impeachmen ...

Democrats Keep Up Impeachment Chatter

Jul 29 2014 3:58am CDT | Source: Taegan Goddard's Political Wire

Politico: "Something very strange is happening on Capitol Hill. Democrats can't talk enough about impeaching a president of their own party. And Republicans keep saying that there isn't a chance they'll give it a try." "With just three days left until Congress recesses for the month of August, Democrats have successfully kept alive the idea that Speaker John Boehner is mulling impeaching President Obama -- an option the Ohio R ...

John Boehner Leans On 'Worst Pop Singer Ever' For Talking Points On Jobs

Members of Congress often employ groan-inducing press materials in order to spread their message on any given day. There's the cheesy Valentine's Day greeting cards, which lawmakers tailor every year to a timely issue. Or, for example, there's using adorable kittens to attack Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) But House Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio) press operation may have taken the cake on ...

Jul 25 2014 10:51pm CDT | Source: WND

(CampusReform) An Ohio State University (OSU) class has apparently determined another fundamental difference between Christians and atheists: their IQ points. An online quiz from the school’s Psychology 1100 class, provided to Campus Reform via tip, asked students to pick which scenario they found most likely given that “Theo has an IQ of 100 and Aine has an IQ of 125.” The correct answer? “Aine is an atheis ...
