Kicking off a two-day bus tour across Florida, President Obama on Saturday tried to convince voters that America is not deteriorating, while his opponent Mitt Romney, campaigning in another key swing state, told a Virginia crowd there would be no cuts to the military under his watch.
Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman, trailing well behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the polls, no longer is predicting an outright victory in Tuesday's GOP primary in New Hampshire.
In the Navy town of Virginia Beach, Mr. Romeny promised to roll back the "sequestration" defense cuts set to kick in in 2013 unless Republican and Democratic congressional leaders reach a long-term fiscal deal this year.
"We must have a military second to none," he told supporters. "If I'm president of the United States we'll get rid of those sequestration cuts and rebuild America's military might."
