AND HE'S NOT GOING TO WIN THESE SWING STATES WITHOUT BRINGING SENATORS WITH HIM:
Ohio Now Up for Grabs as Romney Closes the Gap (SAM YOUNGMAN, 10/14/12, Reuters)
Despite pundits and pollsters dismissing Romney's chances in the state in late September, the Republican is now either tied or just barely trailing Obama in Ohio ahead of the next presidential debate on Tuesday night. At an event with thousands of Ohioans on Friday night, Romney boasted of "a growing crescendo of enthusiasm." He has spoken to several large audiences in Ohio this week."(Obama's) campaign is about smaller and smaller things, and our campaign is about bigger and bigger crowds fighting for a bright future," he said on Saturday.No Republican has ever won the presidency without winning Ohio. Romney looks determined to put the state in his win column in the November 6 election after it appeared nearly out of reach last month.
If he were to pick up the same number of seats that Reagan did, the GOP would be very close to the 60 necessary in the modern Senate.
