The campaign of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney announced Monday that the candidate will stop in Ohio and Pennsylvania on Election Day. In an effort to "keep working until the polls close," Romney will visit Cleveland and Pittsburgh. In recent days, Romney campaign advisers have paid closer attention to Pennsylvania, which they view "as a backstop against losing other battleground states, especially as President Obama has managed to maintain a mostly consistent if slight advantage over Romney in Ohio." Pittsburgh also has the advantage of "bleeding over" into the Ohio media markets. In Cleveland, Romney will visit his campaign's victory office. For his part, President Obama plans to play basketball on Election Day.
