Candidates making final push for support
DES MOINES, Iowa -- President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are racing across competitive battleground states.
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 today 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."
NFL fans will also get to hear the candidates' closing arguments. Both President Obama and Mitt Romney are taping interviews that will air during half-time of Monday night football. ESPN's Chris Berman will be asking the questions.
