The Romney campaign is so confident in their position that they are willing to make plays in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania.
This morning, the Romney campaign announced that Paul Ryan would go to Minnesota on Sunday for a pre-election campaign rally. Its a clear sign that the Romney campaign thinks Minnesota is winnable. Where campaigns spend their time in the closing days of a race says much more about their view of the election than words repeated by campaign flacks. Candidates’ time is a campaign’s most precious resource, and it is deployed only if it’s needed or can have an impact.
You don’t waste a candidate’s time on a bluff in the final 48 hours.
Last night, the campaign announced that Mitt Romney would go to Philadelphia on Sunday for a campaign rally. It is telling that both Romney and Ryan are spending some of the campaign’s final hours in a bid for states that haven’t voted GOP for president in decades.
There are plenty of paths to 270 without Minnesota, Wisconsin, or Pennsylvania. The fact that the Romney campaign will spend their time and resources in these states proves they are confident in their ability to expand the map and turn this "close" race into a blowout.
That will be a mandate for fiscal responsibility!
Rasmussen has a deadlocked race.
