Obama, Romney tour swing states in final push
US President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney have begun a final countdown of campaigning in key battleground states. Obama is making 8 stops in 7 states across the country over the weekend.
Romney campaigned in 3 states on Saturday, including Iowa in the Midwest. On Saturday, Obama spoke before an audience of 4,000 in Ohio. He said the election was a choice between 2 different visions for the United States -- the top down approach that crashed the economy or a future built on a strong and growing middle class.
During an address in Iowa, Romney criticized Obama for increasing instead of reducing the economic burden on the public, despite his promise of change 4 years ago. Romney said he wants to bring real change to the United States and lead the country in the right direction.
Opinion polls show that the 2 candidates are in a dead heat ahead of Tuesday's election.
