It’s finally Election Day, but Ohio—especially Northeast Ohio—isn’t out of the spotlight yet.
Both the Obama and Romney campaigns made a stop in (the exact same spot of) Cleveland earlier today.
CNN reports that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s plane landed at the airport earlier today. Shortly before noon, the plane for his vice presidential candidate, Paul Ryan, also landed.
So did Vice President Joe Biden’s plane.
With all the recent campaign stops in the area, this isn't surprising. The Washington Post's Election 2012 Blog reports that this has actually happened to the candidates three times in the past three days, including this past weekend in Cleveland.
This post will be updated as more information from the visits comes in. If you hear about another candidate making a last-minute stop in the area, tell us in the comments.
Update, 4:43 p.m.: Here's NewsNet5.com's coverage of the candidate visits, with a focus on Biden's trip to a Cleveland diner.
Here’s a look at the campaigns’ visits to area Patch cities just last week:
