As they make their closing arguments, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have revealed their campaign itinerary for election eve Monday, and both will be joined by high-wattage musicians who have flanked their candidacies. In Obama’s case, that means Jay-Z and Bruce Springsteen. In Romney’s case, that means... Kid Rock.
Obama will move around the Midwest with Springsteen and eventually Jay-Z before meeting up with Michelle Obama in Des Moines, Iowa, where the president got his first jolt of energy in the 2008 caucuses. Romney will also have a day packed with swing-state visits before traveling to New Hampshire, where he will meet Ann Romney and Kid Rock. The singer’s “Born Free” has been a staple at Romney events.
On Election Day, Obama will return to Chicago and Romney will head to Boston, their respective campaign headquarters, to await election results.
