Romney Continues His Coal Crusade (Update 1)
Romney must stem Obama's widening lead in key coal battleground states, especially as coal miners, residents and Democratic politicians in these areas haven't shown great support for the current president's energy policies.
A so-called "War on Coal" moniker -- which is the name of Romney's newest television ad -- could work, but voters would be wise to understand that the coal industry's woes may have less to do with Obama and more to do with global pressures and evolving market demands.
