Obama, Romney both seek advantage on health care and the economy
MANALAPAN, Fla. (AP) ¯¯¯ President Barack Obama is warning Florida retirees that Republican challenger Mitt Romney would undercut the new health care law and alter Medicare, a play for voters in one of the nation's top swing states.
Obama wraps up a two-day trip to Florida on Friday with stops in Fort Myers and suburban Orlando.
Romney is keeping his focus on the economy, charging that Obama remains more concerned about holding onto his own job than creating more jobs for Americans. The Republican is finishing off a week of aggressive anti-Obama rhetoric with a campaign stop in Bow, N.H., on Friday.
None of the toss-up states is more prominent than Florida, which narrowly decided the 2000 election and could provide a major boost to whoever prevails in the state.
