“Mitt Romney is set to make a last-minute campaign stop on Sunday in Pennsylvania,” reports Dan Hirschhorn of The Daily:
Details are still being determined and with scheduling for the final days of the campaign still fluid, it’s possible Romney could still bypass the state. But two top Pennsylvania Republican officials and a Romney adviser said a large rally in the vote-rich Philadelphia area is in the works for Sunday. The final decision is likely to be made on Friday.
“I’m 99 percent certain he’s coming,” one senior level Republican official told The Daily. “It’s going to be a huge rally and it’s going to be very successful.”
H/t: Jim Geraghty. Guess the state must really be in play then.
UPDATE: Ace reports:
In 2008, Republicans led absentee voting by 2%, in a surprisingly narrow loss in an election Obama destroyed McCain in.
Today, Republicans lead by 18%.
Absentees are a small slice of the voting population, but they are suggestive of determination to vote in the broader population.
This seems to be continuing a trend Bruce reported two days ago.
