President Obama and Mitt Romney campaigned in competitive battleground states Sunday and will continue to do so leading up to Election Day on Tuesday.
They're stressing differences on the economy, health care and more while professing a willingness to work across party lines to end gridlock in Washington.
Obama told thousands of cheering supporters in New Hampshire on Sunday they "have the power." The president said he wants to work across party lines, but said he won't give up priorities such as college financial aid or the health care law he pushed through Congress.
Boos from Romney's partisans in Cleveland turned to appreciative laughter when the Republican nominee began a sentence by saying, "If the president were to be elected," and ended it with, "It's possible, but not likely."
After a campaign that began more than a year ago, late public opinion polls were unpredictably tight for the nationwide popular vote. But they suggested an advantage for the president in the state-by-state competition for electoral votes.
Romney campaigned Sunday in Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Iowa, making a morning stop in Des Moines. “If there's anyone who wonders whether better jobs and better paychecks are a thing of the past I have a clear and unequivocal message. With the right leadership America is gonna come roaring back.”
Obama campaigned in New Hampshire, Florida, Ohio and Colorado on Sunday. He'll be in Des Moines Monday night, accompanied by first lady Michelle Obama and rocker Bruce Springsteen for an appearance at 9:30 p.m. in Des Moines' East Village, East Grand Avenue and East 5th Street. The event is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required for entry. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
