Ohio Ground Game Passes 3,000,000 Voter Contacts

I was curious what the numbers would be like in the more populous states where many more funds are being spent and now we have Ohio‘s tally:

Kathy Schwartz of Galloway on Thursday got a surprise call from GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney congratulating her on making the three millionth Ohio voter contact on his behalf. Schwartz, who volunteers at Romney’s Grove City campaign center, stood in a parking lot with other volunteers and put Romney’s voice on speaker phone for all to hear.

Thanking her repeatedly, Romney said, “Ohio is probably going to be a place that decides the next president.” In a statement, Schwartz said she was “touched at how humbled he seemed by the incredible amount of work being done here in Ohio on behalf of his vision for the country.”. She continued: “We just talked a little bit about what we’ve been doing here in Ohio and we joked around about it a little since I clearly did not call all three million myself.”

The campaign released a clip of the phone conversation.
