Mitt Romney will make Election Day stops in Cleveland and Pittsburgh, a Romney campaign official confirmed Monday to The Washington Post.
The late additions to the candidate’s schedule are a sign that the Republican nominee felt it necessary to make a late push in Pennsylvania and Ohio, two states that are key to President Obama’s Rust Belt firewall. If the president is able to hold the pair, along with Wisconsin and Iowa, he will likely have enough electoral votes to secure a second term.
The Romney campaign did not immediately reveal what shape the political events would take, although NBC News reported that in Cleveland, he would likely visit his campaign’s field office in the city. ABC News reported that Romney would first vote in Boston before departing for the campaign trips, with the candidate expected to return to Boston for his Tuesday election night rally.
