Ryan also on the trail on Election Day
Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will spend Election Day on the road in Ohio and Virginia, his campaign said Monday night. Earlier in the day CNN reported that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney will hold Election Day events.
Ryan's schedule puts him landing at the same Ohio airport at approximately the same time as Romney.
Romney has plans to vote near his home in Massachusetts on Tuesday, then travel to Cleveland, Ohio, and on to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Ryan, meanwhile, will vote near his Janesville, Wisconsin, home, then appear in Cleveland, Ohio, and Richmond, Virginia.
The campaign did not announce details for a rally in any of the cities, and a campaign adviser said the trips would be treated as "OTR" events -- campaign lingo for smaller, unannounced stops at small events, such as restaurants or campaign offices.
Some previous presidential candidates have stayed off the trail on Election Day, while others have hit the road in a last-minute effort with varied success.
In 2008, Republican nominee John McCain made stops in Colorado and New Mexico, though he ended up losing in both states. President Obama had more success with his Election Day battleground state stop in Indiana: The state went his way by about 30,000 votes out of 2.7 million cast.
In 2004, both candidates made campaign stops in states that went their way. President George W. Bush stopped in Ohio and Democratic nominee John Kerry held a rally in Wisconsin.
