Mitt Romney is to travel to Wisconsin, a state Barack Obama won in a 14-point blowout four years ago, as the Republican candidate’s surging campaign seeks to expand the ‘chessboard’ into previously safe Democratic territory.
At the same time, the Romney campaign has bought television advertising in the Boston market, which reaches screens in New Hampshire, a state Obama won by almost 10 points in 2008.
Asked whether Romney himself would be visiting Wisconsin in the closing days of the race, Eric Fehrnstrom, a senior Romney adviser, said: ‘Yes. Paul Ryan was just in Pittsburgh. We’ll be back in Wisconsin, sure. Wisconsin is definitely in play.’
Good move, Mitt. Now hit MI, MN, and PA while you’re at it.
