If you aren’t following The 12 yet, you should! Some great posts starting to pop into my dashboard from our group Tumblr: college journalists curating the 2012 election from 12 swing states. Today, case in point:
• Andrew Krietz in Michigan tumbling Mitt Romney’s campaign trail reaction to Marco Rubio veepstakes back-and-forth
• Ryan Thompson (above) in Florida on the latest boost to Rep. Connie Mack’s campaign
• Justin Lagore with a great photo roundup of Romney’s weekend swing through Ohio
• Samra Khawaja tracking the latest political ads in Virginia

Just saying, there’s an awful lot of flying on this bus tour. (via Romney’s six-state bus tour - The Washington Post)
It’s all but certain that a handful of states will determine whether Barack Obama or Mitt Romney will get to 270 electoral votes Nov. 6. And within those states, a few recurring narratives will dominate headlines and national perceptions about how those votes will swing in the fall: Economic recovery in Michigan. Immigration laws in Arizona. Union battles in Wisconsin. Northern Virginia (blue), and the rest of Virginia (not so blue).
Today we’re launching The 12, a Washington Post blog powered by Tumblr and populated by student journalists at 12 universities in competitive 2012 election states.
