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.

It's not about America

Oct 12 2014 4:15pm CDT | Source: WND

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, stated recently that after a Republican victory in 2014, there would be no “radical” agenda. Reason: He wants to consolidate power for a win in 2016. It is all about them – the politicians – and not the U.S. Boehner was honest enough to put it out there. He knows we are too stupid to throw the incumbents out. He is correct. We need to turn incumbents out each election cycle until they get the message. Democrat or Republic ...

Supreme Court Backs Voter Restrictions

Oct 9 2014 4:30am CDT | Source: Taegan Goddard's Political Wire

The Supreme Court "reversed a federal appeals court's decision that would have allowed same-day registration and counted votes cast mistakenly in the wrong precincts. Those were among several other procedures eliminated by the state Legislature last year in what critics called the most restrictive voting law in the nation," USA Today reports. Morning Line: "This comes a week after the Supreme ...
