The opponent Mitt Romney was not spotted after the press announced the victory of incumbent President Barack Obama in the national election. The supporters milled around in their hotel ballroom where supposed to be the place where they will celebrate the victory of their republican candidate.
In Ohio, Obama’s votes were remarkably close to Romney’s path to about 270 electoral votes. As expected, the Democrat also won together with Wisconsin, New Hamshire, Iowa and Colorado. In addition, Pennsylvania and Michigan which was expected to raise the votes of the Republicans became one of the cities with highest votes to Democrats. While in Virginia and Florida, Republicans have high votes.
“I feel like we put it all on the field. We left nothing in the locker room. We fought to the very end, and I think that’s why we’ll be successful,” said Mitt Romney while boarding his plane on his way to Boston from Pittsburgh, the day before the election night event at Westin Boston waterfront Hotel.
It is not surprising when Mitt Romney focused his campaign in Ohio. Indeed, he has invested a lot of time campaigning in Ohio that the other state. It is due to the fact that no Republicans ever won the candidacy for the presidency without carrying the so called Midwestern battleground.
Mitt Romney did not spend more time in Pennsylvania because of its track record of not supporting any Republican presidential candidate over the centuries. According to polls, the race for the presidency in Pennsylvania was very tight even though Mitt Romney just launched the statewide campaign last July.
Even though, he started his state wide campaign, and it became his least expected state to raise his votes from Obama for the presidency, the votes show that Mitt Romney tried his best to deprive the incumbent the second term.
“We can’t let up now. We need to keep going until the final polls close tomorrow night,” according to Rich Beeson, Mitt Romney’s political director. “With an election this important, let’s leave it all on the field.” he added.
