Andrea Saul, a Mitt Romney campaign representative, explained what went into that decision.
"We feel very good. Voters across the country are very enthusiastic about a Romney Ryan ticket," Saul said. "We have the momentum behind our campaign. We really feel that it's going to propel us into the presidency. Governor Romney is winning [among] independents. We have a very excited base and we have a great get out the vote operation. It's important today for voters to get out there, cast their vote for Mitt Romney so that we can see real change and real recovery."
Governor Romney is scheduled to make stops in Ohio and Pennsylvania Tuesday. Saul believes it will have an impact on the election.
"Governor Romney will never stop asking for people's votes," Saul said. "We need to get this country back on the right track, and he's got plans to create 12 million new jobs, higher incomes and provide a real recovery. So any chance he gets to take that message to voters, he's going to do so."
Saul also talked about the significance of swing states and how Democrats claim they have been up in many of them.
"I don't necessary agree with those polls," Saul said. "The only poll obviously that counts is the one today. A lot of these state polls have been all over the map. They have shown democrats with a huge advantage in the sample, which is not what we're going to see today. We're not going to see that there are more democrats turning out then they did in 2008. We're going to see more republicans and less democrats. In the early voting, we saw that Governor Romney was over performing, while President [Obama] was underperforming. I think that at the end of the day and the end of the night tonight Governor Romney will be the next President of the United States."
