Yes, Romney’s Minnesota ads are all about western Wisconsin

An illuminating set of screencaps from Ace’s co-blogger ConArtCritic to help answer the question I posed here this morning. It’s the two columns on the far right in his ‘caps that you want to pay closest attention to. Essentially, Romney’s keeping rough pace with Scott Walker’s victorious performance in Milwaukee and Green Bay this past summer, but he’s a few points behind elsewhere in the state. That’s what the ads are about — hitting those other parts, i.e. western Wisconsin.
Makes me wonder what happens next week if the Ohio polls on Monday and Tuesday remain stuck with Obama up two or three points. Does he shift some spending to Wisconsin then in an eleventh-hour attempt to take the state? I know I’ve said it umpteen times, but here’s umpteen plus one: If he wins Virginia and (gulp) Colorado, then he can win the presidency without Ohio. To do it, he’d need Wisconsin and New Hampshire/Iowa. Depending upon what the Ohio data says in the next few days, maybe that Plan B will become Plan A.
