Super Campaigning: Obama, Romney Will Have Super Bowl Events in Indiana—PICTURES

February 3, 2012

On Sunday, the New England Patriots and the New York Giants will vie for the NFL's Lombardi Trophy at the Super Bowl in Indianapolis—a crowning achievement in American sports. Meanwhile, President Obama and Mitt Romney are locked in a contest for the crowning achievement in American politics—the presidency. To reach that goal, the campaigns of both candidates will be holding events. Here's a look at who will be attending
