Mitt Romney Adds Election Day Campaign Events

DON EMMERT/AFP/Getty Images(DULLES, Va.) -- Mitt Romney has been chanting “one more day” all day Monday on the stump, but as it turns out, he will campaign for yet another day: Tuesday, Election Day.

A campaign official said Monday that after Romney votes in his hometown of Belmont, Mass., Tuesday morning he will head to two swing states, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The stops will be in Cleveland and Pittsburgh. It was not immediately clear how many events would be held in each state or what kind of events they will be.

Both states are crucial to Romney’s road to the White House. Pennsylvania is a state with renewed interest for the Romney campaign which they say is an “opportunity” for the Republican.

The Romney campaign had previously advised a “Final Victory Rally” in New Hampshire for Tuesday evening, an event unlikely to start much before midnight.

The Obama campaign says the president has no plans to leave the state of Illinois on Tuesday. He is scheduled to arrive at his Chicago home at 12:40 a.m. Tuesday after the final rally in Des Moines, Iowa.

Campaigning on Election Day is not unprecedented. Sen. John McCain campaigned in New Mexico and Colorado on Election Day in 2008 and then- Sen. Barack Obama made a campaign stop in Indiana.
