Romney readies bus tour

Mitt Romney and his bus will rumble through the heartland this week on the "Every Town Counts" tour (my preferred name -- The "It Could Be a Setting in A Number of Rodgers and Hammerstein Musicals" Tour).

The schedule:

• Friday, June 15 – New Hampshire

• Saturday, June 16 – Pennsylvania

• Sunday, June 17 – Ohio

• Monday, June 18 – Wisconsin and Iowa

• Tuesday, June 19 – Michigan

In each of those states, Romney needs big turnouts in rural areas that, in isolation, don't mean much but, added together, can help overcome losses in urban areas.
