Romney to Hit Swing States on Election Day

DULLES, VA - Mitt Romney, who had no plans to campaign on Election Day, has now decided to travel to the swing states of Pennsylvania and Ohio on Tuesday.

Aides said Mr. Romney would visit campaign offices in Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Until now, his staff had said that a rally in New Hampshire on Monday night would be his last event of the campaign.

The move reflects just how close the contest remains - Mr. Romney is determined to squeeze as much time in swing states as possible before the polls close.

Politicking on Election Day, while not entirely unusual, is tricky because it risks siphoning off resources and manpower in crucial states from traditional get-out-the-vote efforts.

Mr. Romney will fly to the two states after voting in his home district in Belmont, Mass., on Tuesday morning.
