ELIZABETHTOWN, LANCASTER COUNTY—Just over three weeks until Election Day and the big guns are hitting Central Pennsylvania. Ann Romney, Mitt Romney's wife will be stumping in Lancaster County trying to win some last minute votes.
Ann Romney is speaking this afternoon at Elizabethtown College as she tries to put Pennsylvania back on the presidential map. For months, many believe Pennsylvania would once go by way of the Democrats. But with only a few weeks to go, the Republicans are looking to make a last minute surge in Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes.
Twenty two days and counting until Election Day 2012 and Central Pennsylvania is getting a visit from a woman hoping to be the next first lady. Ann Romney is scheduled to stop at Elizabethtown College hoping to excite the republican base.
"I think the race is very close. I think the wind is at Governor Romney's back," said Ed Gillespie, Romney Campaign Senior Advisor.
That wind comes just two days ahead of round two of the Presidential debate. Romney and President Barack Obama spent the weekend preparing for Tuesday night's showdown. Romney is hoping to convince some last minute voters, including those right here in PA, that he is the man to turn the country around.
"There is clearly momentum, you can see it on the trail and you can see it in the data. But the country is pretty evenly divided," Gillespie said.
According to a new poll, Pennsylvania is pretty evenly divided as well. A recent poll from Susquehanna Polling shows President Obama with only a slim two point margin in the Keystone State, 47 to 45.
"Hello everybody. hello hello. I brought some food!" said the President during a stop at one of the campaign headquarters in Virginia.
Taking a break from preparing for the debate, the President delivered pizza to his Virginia campaign staff, thanking them for their service. The President is hoping to improve on a dismal debate performance two weeks ago, with the economy leading the focus.
"He's going to be aggressive in making the case for his view of where we should go as a country and a country that's built around a growing thriving middle class, not this top down theory that Governor Romney has," said David Axelrod, Obama Campaign Senior Advisor.
Ann Romney's visit to Elizabethtown College is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Doors open at 1 p.m. The event is free to the public but people wishing to attend had to register on the Lancaster County's Republican website. The site is showing no more tickets are available.
Romney is looking to be the first Republican Presidential candidate to win PA since 1988.
