Political strategy is so fine-tuned for the 2012 presidential election that it's not only about winning key states, it's about winning key cities.

Swing states such as Ohio and Iowa will prove critical this fall, but so will cities such as like Columbus, Des Moines, and even Hampton Roads, Va.

According to The (Washington) Examiner, top Republican strategists say Mitt Romney must win Columbus and Des Moines, two cities split along party lines, to take the White House on Nov. 6.

Former Bush political director Sara Fagen made the prediction, the Examiner reports. The election, she said, will likely come down to Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

The margins could be in the thousands of votes, Fagen told the Examiner during the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

President Barack Obama, though, likely could take Hampton Roads, Fagen said, and he should focus his campaign on the Norfolk area in the southern part of the state.

“Ohio is the most important” for Romney, she told the Examiner. “Virginia for Obama.”
