Examining Obama’s Schedule in the Final Days


Via Mike Allen’s morning newsletter at Politico:

AP’s Julie Pace: “Obama will headline rallies in Bridgeport, Conn., and Chicago, and participate in a canvassing event in Philadelphia on Oct. 30. The next day Obama will head to Cleveland with Vice President Joe Biden for his final rally of the campaign season. . . . The White House has said the president plans to be in Washington* on Nov. 1, the Monday before the election, and on Election Day. . . . Michelle Obama will campaign in Las Vegas and Philadelphia on Nov. 1.”

Obviously, they’re focusing on Connecticut, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Nevada. Depending on which Washington they mean, Patty Murray’s Senate reelection bid may or may not have made the cut.

Missing from the list: California, Colorado, Wisconsin.

Missing from the list and unsurprising: Florida, New Hampshire, Alaska, West Virginia, Kentucky.

* Do they mean Washington state or Washington, D.C.?
