Romney Campaigning On Election Day [VIDEO]

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s yearslong quest for the presidency is ending with a last-minute round of campaigning in one state he’s showered with attention and another he’s largely ignored.

After voting near his Boston-area home, Romney visits airports in Cleveland and Pittsburgh today, betting an 11th-hour appeal to working-class voters in Ohio and Pennsylvania will help him defeat President Barack Obama.

His running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, is following a similar strategy, using his travel time after voting in his Wisconsin hometown to join Romney in Cleveland and then visit Richmond, Va. The campaign isn’t ruling out additional swing-state appearances as well. Later, Ryan will await returns with Romney in Boston.

President Barack Obama has ended his 2012 campaign with a nighttime campaign event in Iowa, telling some 20,000 in Des Moines, “This is where our movement for change began.”

Obama was joined by first lady Michelle Obama and rocker Bruce Springsteen at the outdoor rally Monday night.
