Campaign: The Start Of The Home Stretch

Wednesday, October 24, 2012 - 8:46am

Governor Romney and President Obama criss-cross the country as polls show a very tight race.

If stamina alone won this election, it might be a draw.

President Obama has been in eight states over three days. He'll tape "The Tonight Show" tonight in Los Angeles, and vote tomorrow in Chicago.

Governor Romney hits Nevada and Iowa today, and Ohio tomorrow, after telling voters in Colorado last night the debates "super-charged" his campaign.

He's only one point behind - statistically, a tie, in the latest Reuters-IPSOS Poll. "The President's status quo campaign, you know going forward with the same ideas as we've seen over the last four years is, is why he's slipping," declared Mitt Romney, (R) Presidential Nominee.

In response, President Obama's showing off his four-year plan in a new booklet being distributed to three-and-a-half million voters. "Unlike, Mitt Romney, I'm proud to talk about what's in my plan -- because, first of all, the math actually adds up," said President Barack Obama.

And he's telling America: mitt Romney can't be trusted. "Everything he's doing right now is to hide his real positions and try to win this election," said The President.

Governor Romney calls the trust attack - a desperate attempt to right a sinking ship. "His campaign is taking on water, and ours campaign is full speed ahead," said the Republican Presidential Nominee.

With early voting now underway in four more states as of today... President Obama still holds a narrow lead in a handful of swing states. Most of those states will see at least one candidate this week.
