Just two Sunday mornings left before E-Day, which means it’s time for a battle of the battlegrounders. Democrats will make the pitch to Virgnia and Colorado with Mark Warner, John Hickenlooper, and Mark Udall. The GOP will counter with a push for Ohio and Wisconsin via Rob Portman, John Kasich, Ron Johnson, and of course Scott Walker. I’m a little surprised not to see Kelly Ayotte, Terry Branstad, or Chuck Grassley too; New Hampshire and Iowa are crucial to Romney’s Plan B if Ohio falls through. Maybe next week.
Andrew Sullivan will be on the ABC panel, in case you want to see what a Sullivan freakout looks like on TV instead of on the page. The line-up via WaPo:
