Winning: Mitt Romney heads into Democratic strongholds
The Washington Times ^ | October 30 | Henry D'Andrea

Posted on 10/30/2012 9:21:39 PM PDT by conservativeforpalin

In a clear sign that Gov. Mitt Romney is winning this election, today the Romney campaign announced that they would begin to venture into the Democratic strongholds of Pennsylvania and Minnesota. Neither state has gone red in over 20 years.

Additionally, Romney campaign allies announced that they will be entering into the Democratic stronghold of Michigan, forcing the Obama campaign to spend precious ad dollars in a state that hasn’t voted Republican in 24 years.

It is typical of presidential campaigns to buy ads in markets in one state to help secure an adjacent state, but the Obama campaign isn’t spending money in Michigan to help win Ohio, but rather to secure Michigan.

Specifically, the Obama campaign is buying a week’s worth of ads in the Detroit area, which has a radio market that borders Ohio, but does not cross over like other markets do.

The problem for DU is that Obama is following Mitt into these states with his own $$$. If this was a fake-out by the Romney team Obama’s people would not rush in hence this is why we know that this is the real deal:)

This is too good to keep to myself.

On the way home, I passed by a construction site. High up on the scaffolding was a cardboard sign with red writing (hand lettered) on it. I made out the name "Romney" and had a closer look.

"Bye bye Obama. This is Mitt Romney country"

This was in B*E*R*K*E*L*E*Y CALIFORNIA!

Driving around the Central Coast of CA today, suddenly Romney signs have sprouted up all over the place - on street corners, fences, bumper stickers. Last week - very few. Today, in great numbers.

Obama signs? Not so much. As in... none.

Anecdotal!
