Governor Barbour continues to criss cross the country this week. However Iowa and other Midwestern states hold the key to the White House. The Midwest is the only area of the country that is ALWAYS up for grabs. Obama is likely no match against Haley Barbour. Obama will need to raise 2 billion buy Haley’s charm. When voters meet him, they like him. As goes Iowa, so goes the White House. There are 59 electoral votes touching the shores of Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. Michigan and Indiana both went for Obama in 2008 and both have elected Republican governors since then. As go the Great Lakes states, so goes the White House.
