How to View Romney's Move Into Pennsylvania

First Read: "There are two ways to interpret Mitt Romney's decision to campaign in Pennsylvania on Sunday. Either it's a move to run up the score (trying to get to 300 electoral votes) and project more momentum, or it's an effort to search for another path to 270 electoral votes. Ask yourself what is the more likely option, and it's hard to ignore the latter. Consider: Most public polls continue to show Obama leading slightly in Ohio, and Romney hasn't made a serious campaign effort in Keystone State since the primaries. Indeed, it's difficult not to compare this move to an on-side kick in football -- when you're behind by a touchdown with a few ticks on the clock left."
