Romney and Obama: I’m the real candidate of change


< Previous Page


"What the governor is offering sure ain’t change. Giving more power back to the biggest banks isn’t change. Leaving millions without health insurance isn’t change. Another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy isn’t change. Turning Medicare into a voucher is change, but we don’t want that change," he said.

The president’s campaign went up with a new ad featuring Collin Powell endorsing the president. "I think we ought to keep on the track we’re on," says the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who was secretary of state under President George W. Bush.

Officials said the ad would run in 10 states, including Minnesota, one of the states where Romney and his GOP allies launched late advertising.

A separate Obama commercial had a more limited exposure — and a harsher message. Aimed at voters in Michigan and Ohio, it cites independent fact-checkers and top executives from Chrysler and General Motors to rebut Romney’s recent ads that suggest auto jobs are moving to China from the United States.

Both campaigns invested heavily in early voting, and more than 2.7 million had already been cast in Florida alone. None will be counted until Election Day.
