2 surprise stops as Romney ends presidential quest

KASIE HUNT STEVE PEOPLES Associated Press Published:

BOSTON (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's yearslong quest for the presidency is ending with a last-minute round of campaigning in one state he's showered with attention and another he's largely ignored.

After voting near his Boston-area home, Romney visits airports in Cleveland and Pittsburgh on Tuesday, betting an 11th-hour appeal to working-class voters in Ohio and Pennsylvania will help him defeat President Barack Obama.

His running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, is following a similar strategy, using his travel time after voting in his Wisconsin hometown to join Romney in Cleveland and then visit Richmond, Va. The campaign isn't ruling out additional swing-state appearances as well. Later, Ryan will await returns with Romney in Boston.
