CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) – Mitt Romney will head to Ohio and Pennsylvania on Election Day for a last-minute flurry of campaigning before the polls close.

Romney’s campaign has confirmed that the Republican presidential nominee will make two stops Tuesday – in Cleveland and Pittsburgh. The move comes as somewhat of a surprise as Romney was scheduled to wrap his campaign with a late-night rally Monday in New Hampshire.

Romney and President Barack Obama are aggressively fighting to win Ohio. Recent polls give Obama a narrow lead in the battleground state.

Romney began making a significant play for Pennsylvania last week. The last time the state voted for a Republican presidential candidate was 1988.
