Governor Romney and his wife Ann cast ballots near their Belmont, Massachusetts home and then the Republican presidential nominee hit the trail for one last day. Headed for the competitive Buckeye state.
“It is critical because this is a big day for big change and we’re about to change America to help people in ways they didn’t imagine they could be helped. With good jobs and better take home pay.” said Mitt Romney.
Running mate Paul Ryan voted in Janesville, Wisconsin before joining Romney in Ohio for a rally.
“This is a day when we work hard to get our country back on the right track.” said Paul Ryan.
The GOP ticket shared a quick lunch at Wendy’s. Then split up for the final visits of this campaign.
Ryan headed to Virginia while governor Romney is making a final push in Pennsylvania, hoping to turn things in his favor in a state that hasn’t voted for a republican presidential candidate since 1988.
At a big rally Monday night in New Hampshire Romney thanked the state where he launched his presidential campaign and expressed confidence about how this election will end.
“You got it started a year and a half ago at farm and then primary vote put me on path to win the Republican nomination and tomorrow your votes and work right here in New Hampshire will help me became next President of the US.” said Mitt Romney.
The election night party gets underway early this evening. Romney, Ryan, their families and supporters; will all be here watching returns come in.
President Obama wrapped up the campaign in Iowa late last night and earlier Tuesday. They put in a little time at the Chicago field office as voters across the country got to the polls.
While President Obama visited his campaign headquarters he placed a half dozen or so phone calls to supporters and team leaders in neighboring Wisconsin. HE had just visited the state again Monday.
President Obama also congratulated republican nominee Mitt Romney on a “Spirited Campaign”; but says he’s confident about his chances.
Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden was on the move with unannounced stop in Ohio. Likely the most important battleground state.
“It’s always a kick, it really is, to see people out here. I hope everybody exercises their right to vote.” said Joe Biden.
President Obama already voted during the early voting period late last month. He’s spending a portion of his day reaching out to voters through a series of satellite TV interviews in swing states.
