A Ray of Hope

Why today was a good day for Mitt Romney.


Every day until the election, Slate will offer up one reason to be optimistic for your candidate.

41 Days to go:

Today’s Good News for Romney: Wisconsin and Michigan may be leaning slightly blue, but here comes the big money. The conservative super PAC Restore our Future is dumping cash into the two states, spending $2.2 million in the coming week alone. At the same time, Crossroads GPS and Americans for Job Security are flooding the airwaves with anti-Obama messages across the country. Obama has a lead in a number of battleground states, but the Romney air war is just beginning.
