Candidates head to manufacturing states on final full day of campaigning
On the final day of the Election 2012 cycle, both presidential candidates have made it a point to visit manufacturing-intensive states.
Today, President Obama makes his final appeal to voters in Wisconsin, Ohio, and Iowa, while Mitt Romney does the same with voters in Ohio.
You may recall during the summer when the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) released the results of a national poll that showed voters strongly favor a revitalized U.S. manufacturing sector.
Since then, AAM has tracked a plethora of instances of candidates (national, state, and local) speaking about the importance of domestic manufacturing. We'd like to think the poll had some influence on candidates.
We hope, when all is said and done, the next President and Congress will recognize the importance of a strong manufacturing base to the prosperity of the United States and take appropriate action.
