Clinton to Pennsylvania Monday: One man firewall.

| No Comments

BEACHWOOD, Ohio--Bill Clinton is being deployed to Pennsylvania on Monday---with four stops the day before the election-- to snuff out the Romney campaign last minute bid to put Pennsylvania in play.

The Romney team is pumping in ads and candidate stops: Mitt Romney is in Pennsylvania on Sunday and Paul Ryan stumped in Harrisburg Saturday. That Clinton has to spend time in Pennsylvania on a day when he would otherwise be used to boost turnout in another battleground state-shows the impact of the Romney move.

Clinton on Monday will be in Philadelphia, Blue Bell, Pittsburgh and Scranton, Pennsylvania. From the Obama campaign: "During this final push over the past week, he has held grassroots events in Iowa, Florida, Colorado, Ohio, Virginia, Minnesota, New Hampshire and Wisconsin."
