Inside Politics: AME Church denies withdrawing support for Obama
In a television advertisement released Tuesday, the campaign says Mr. Romney invested in companies that moved jobs overseas and supports tax breaks for companies that do so. The ad, titled “Believe”, says Mr. Obama believes in “insourcing” and favors tax cuts for companies that bring jobs back to the U.S.
Democrats believe a drumbeat of ads accusing Mr. Romney of shipping U.S. jobs overseas is starting to take hold in battleground states and impact voters’ views of the presumptive GOP nominee.
The ad is running in nine politically important states, including Colorado and Virginia.
Romney has working holiday planned for July Fourth
WOLFEBORO — Mitt Romney is on vacation this Fourth of July week — but not from politics.
The Republican presidential candidate is enjoying the summer holiday with his large family at his lakeside vacation home outside of Wolfeboro, N.H.
He also is huddling with his top campaign advisers, including his campaign manager and the aide charged with overseeing his vice-presidential search. Plus, his top strategist is in town shooting video for new TV ads.
Mr. Romney himself is set to march in the local July 4th parade. And while Mr. Romney and his family haven’t encouraged media coverage of their ice cream outings and sports events, they haven’t shied away from the cameras.
Obama administration wants review of gay marriage law
The Obama administration is asking the Supreme Court to settle the legal fight over a law that denies federal benefits to married gay couples.
The Justice Department on Tuesday asked the court to hear an appeal in its next term of lower court rulings striking down a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act. The earliest the justices might decide to hear the case is in late September. Arguments probably would take place over the winter and a decision returned by late June 2013.
The administration said it agrees with the lower court rulings, but wants prompt high court review because President Obama has instructed federal agencies to continue to enforce the law’s ban on federal benefits to married gay couples until there is a final court ruling.
