Question of the Day
They shrug at President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney. They’re in no hurry to decide which one to support in the White House race. And they’ll have a big say in determining who wins the White House.
One-quarter of U.S. voters are persuadable, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll, and both Mr. Obama and Mr. Romney will spend the next four months trying to convince these fickle, hard-to-reach individuals that only one has what it takes to fix an ailing economy.
President slams Romney over outsourcing of jobs
TAMPA, Fla. — President Obama sought to discredit rival Mitt Romney’s business background Friday, pointing to investments by Mr. Romney’s former private equity firm in companies that moved jobs to low-wage countries. “We don’t need an outsourcing pioneer in the Oval Office,” Mr. Obama said.
Mr. Obama’s campaign has tried to undermine Mr. Romney’s case to voters that his background in business would help him jump-start the nation’s economy, which has been hampered by weak job growth, high unemployment and uncertainty over European countries struggling to resolve a debt crisis that has roiled the global economy.
Shooting survivor holds ‘Congress on Your Corner’
TUCSON — A newly sworn-in congressman who was injured in a mass shooting last year along with then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords held his first “Congress on Your Corner” event with southern Arizona constituents Saturday.
Ms. Giffords conducted 21 of the informal meet-and-greet events during her more than four years in office, including one on the day of the shooting — Jan. 8, 2011. The rampage left six dead and 13 wounded, including Ms. Giffords and her then-district director, Ron Barber.
Ms. Giffords relinquished the seat in January to concentrate on her recovery from a gunshot wound to the head. Mr. Barber, a Democrat, won a special election to replace her earlier this month. He was sworn in Tuesday in the District.
About 300 people showed up at Saturday’s event outside a Tucson grocery store as temperatures topped 100 degrees, Barber spokesman Mark Kimble said. Visitors ranged from other survivors of the mass shooting and well-wishers to people who had concerns about their federal student loans or veteran’s benefits, he said.
