Romney reaching out to white male voters at NASCAR race
September 9, 2012 01:19
VIRGINIA BEACH - Mitt Romney was set to try another lap around the track on Saturday to win over NASCAR stock-car racing fans.
Romney, the Republican presidential candidate facing President Barack Obama, will visit a NASCAR race on Saturday night in Virginia, targeting white male voters in a swing state where early voting begins in two weeks.
Romney needs to win among white men by a healthy margin to offset the advantages Obama enjoys with women as well as black and Hispanic voters. A Reuters/Ipsos poll last week showed Romney with a 20 percentage-point lead among white, male voters.
