Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's concession speech Tuesday night in Boston, as transcribed by Roll Call:
Far from backing away, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his campaign are embracing his claim that nearly half of Americans are dependent on government as they seek to frame the race as a choice between the GOP's wealth-creation policies and what they called President Obama's wealth-redistribution message.
President Obama's campaign said Wednesday that Mitt Romney either lied to voters or to federal regulators about how long he ran his company, while the GOP candidate's team said the "felony" accusation was so over-the-top that the president should apologize for his aides' behavior; voters were left to sort it all out.
Mitt Romney's campaign is distancing itself from a Republican-leaning super PAC's plan to run ads highlighting President Obama's ties to his controversial former pastor.

Mitt Romney won more votes than Rick Santorum in Tuesday's Michigan primary, but the two Republican front-runners split the delegate haul down the middle — 15 each — prompting the Santorum campaign to declare victory as the focus shifts to next week's Super Tuesday.
The top aide to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is using his office as "an opposition-research arm" of President Obama's re-election campaign.
"Mitt Romney's vision for America is an opportunity society where free people and free enterprise thrive and success is admired and emulated, not attacked," Mr. Rhoades said. "President Obama's vision for America is a government-centered society where government grows bigger and more active, occupying more of our everyday lives."
