Romney Shows Softer Side; Obama Raising More Cash
APOPKA, Fla. (AP) — Mitt Romney is showing his softer side, while President Barack Obama works to extend his cash advantage as both men begin a final month sprint to Election Day.
The Republican presidential nominee was spending a second consecutive day campaigning in Florida on Sunday. Romney is pressing a populist message, part of a larger strategy to emphasize his compassionate side and centrist political positions as he courts undecided voters.
Obama, meanwhile, was setting out Sunday to collect more campaign cash over two days in California. The president is trying to recover from a lackluster debate last week that gave Romney some badly needed momentum.
Obama got some good news of his own when Friday’s jobs report put the nation’s unemployment rate at the lowest level of his presidency.
