SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is considering visiting Ohio on Election Day.

GOP officials familiar with the plan say the Republican nominee may make a final visit Tuesday to the critical battleground state, where 18 electoral votes are up for grabs.

Such a visit would be a last-ditch attempt to win a state that is critical to Romney’s presidential hopes. Without it, he would have to win nearly all the other contested states. Polls in Ohio have been stubbornly close, showing Democratic President Barack Obama holding a slight but consistent edge.

Romney had planned to hold his final campaign rally in Manchester, N.H., late Monday night before heading to his home in Belmont, Mass.

The officials requested anonymity to discuss internal campaign strategy.
