As the campaign trail heats up and the race tightens, Mitt Romney is doing everything in his power to maintain his lead and his electoral votes, something that is essential if he hopes to win the 2012 elections. Now that he appears to be in a statistical dead heat with president Obama, he is essentially on the home stretch for the Republican convention which is expected to take place in a few weeks time in the city of Tampa. There was a lot of speculation as to who would be running for president this time around and after all the names surfaced, they eventually got washed away. Romney is doing everything he can to keep is face on the television as he dodges the critics who insist on accusing him of leaning towards extremism.
Each candidate has their idea of what a positive commercial should be all about and yet still it seems that when things don't go their way they fall back on attack campaigns. The problem is that the national debt is still high while unemployment numbers are significant enough to put demands on any leader who happens to hold office. Mitt Romney has not officially been tasked as the leader of the Republican party but for his own purposes he is not losing any opportunity to promote his agenda. As every practical step is taken to show what makes him a better leader than Barack Obama, one wonders which vice president Romney will be courting and whether his choice will give him the needed increased percentages that he is looking for to win this election.
