Romney, GOP Suddenly Plunging Onto Democratic Turf (Thomas Beaumont and Brian Bakst, October 31, 2012, (AP) 

Mitt Romney is suddenly plunging into traditionally Democratic-leaning Minnesota and Pennsylvania, and his GOP allies are trying to put Michigan into play. It's forcing President Barack Obama to defend his own turf - he's pouring money into television ads in the states and dispatching top backers - in the campaign's final week. [...]

Former President Bill Clinton was dispatched in response on Tuesday.
