Romney Upbeat, but Math Is the Same
* * *
The Romney team is mindful that the new enthusiasm has not opened any new paths to winning 270 electoral votes. The campaign continues to keep an eye on trying to make a late run at Pennsylvania, advisers said, but it remains more of a last-ditch option.

While Mr. Obama can win re-election by carrying Iowa, Ohio and Wisconsin, in addition to holding the other Democratic-leaning states across the country, Mr. Romney must capture more states. Even if he wins Ohio, Mr. Romney still must win Florida, North Carolina, Virginia — and one more state.

While both campaigns are still advertising in nine battleground states, advisers to both sides say that the most competitive fight is now taking place in seven: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin. A huge get-out-the-vote effort is under way in all states, with only a sliver of undecided voters remaining.
A lot of fluff that I omitted. I wanted to ask which are the other two states where both campaigns are still advertising ( I assume one is NC). And, does it mean that only 9 states have both campaigns advertising in them, or only 9 states have either?

1. States Don't Move In A Vacuum. They Move In Unison.
If O was losing PA which he isn't he would be losing in a landslide. For instance, NY and PA have voted the same way in every national election but once in the last eighty years.
Romney is done.
