After leaving Richmond, Virginia the President next travels to Illinois as part of the “America Forward!” tour. It is not a battleground state; the President makes the trip in order to take part in early voting in person and become the first sitting President to cast a ballot prior to Election Day. The race between him and contender GOP Presidential candidate Governor Mitt Romney has become much closer in recent days, and the election outcome hinges on a handful of key battleground states including Virginia, Ohio, Florida, Colorado, Iowa, Nevada among others.
