(CNN) – The White House Tuesday denied reports that President Obama will be taking a go-it-alone approach, governing without Congress.

Floridians head to the polls Jan. 31 in the fourth voting contest of the primary season. Running ads in the sprawling state is an expensive proposition for a campaign, and the announcement serves to underscore the Romney team's substantial fundraising and its general-election push.
