However, the second time around they were able to land. Severe weather caused the turbulence. On Friday, Ann Romney’s plane had to make an emergency landing in Denver. She recently spoke about the experience in an interview with Access Hollywood Live.
New polling has good news for President Obama in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. President Obama has a nine percentage advantage in Florida, ten points in Ohio, and twelve points in Pennsylvania. President Obama is over fifty percent in all three polls. The polls also show that while the national race is close, President Obama may still have an advantage state-by-state. The polls also show that President Obama has an advantage on taxes and the economy.
Today, former presidential candidate and senator Rick Santorum and Senator Jim DeMint endorsed Rep. Todd Akin. Recently many social conservatives have come to Todd Akin’s side, saying it is time to forget and move on and back the representative. Rep. Akin was recently in a controversy when he said that “legitimate rape” doesn’t cause pregnancy. Yesterday was the last day Todd Akin could drop out.
