Mitt Romney will be elected 45th President of the United States. He will win without Ohio because of his victories in the six swing states I have projected for him. It will be a very narrow margin, and Romney will lose the election if he loses any of these six swing states. I believe, however, that sometime around 2:00 o’clock am, Wednesday, November 7, 2012, the networks will confirm that Mitt has won all the aforesaid states projected for him. The next sound you will hear is the network anchors referring to him as President-elect Mitt Romney.

"Governor Christie ripped President Obama this summer for failing to carve out some time during a Texas fundraising swing to visit the Mexican border, where the unprecedented flood of immigrant children from Central America had reached a crisis point. ...Yet Christie is not squeezing in a tour of the troubled border during his own three-day trade and diplomatic mission to Mexico, which is set to begin on Wednesday. The governor is planning a series of meetings with Mexican officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto and the finance and energy ministers." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
