ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. (AP) -- Ann Romney is telling voters in Pennsylvania that she believes the state, and its 20 electoral votes, can be won by her husband, Mitt.
Asked by WGAL-TV whether she believes Pennsylvania is in play in the closing weeks of the campaign, Romney said, "I certainly do. That's why I'm here and there's a strong message out there some states that didn't look like they were in play before and are in play again now."
Her remarks were made in an interview ahead of a rousing rally at Elizabethtown College, which drew an enthusiastic crowd of what organizers said was about 900 people.
In an interview with Pittsburgh's KDKA, Romeny said the state "is important to us."
