Here comes Mitt!
From the Daily Mail:
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.Of course, having favorite son Paul Ryan on the ticket as the vice presidential nominee, a first for a Wisconsinite, is a huge boost for the Romney campaign in the state.
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.'
But I think there's another reason Wisconsin is in play.
Thank you, Democrats/union members! Thanks for energizing Wisconsin with the Scott Walker recall!
All those voters who turned out to make Walker the first governor in American history to survive a recall are still organized and ready to roll.
Just a few months ago, on June 5, we rejected Democrat Tom Barrett, three-time gubernatorial loser, and his liberal agenda, by a wide margin.
Wisconsin is ready to reject the failed policies of Obama, as well as the radicalism of Tammy Baldwin.
We rejected big government and fiscal irresponsibility for our state in a big way. We'll do the same for our country.
