Ohio secretary of state to appeal early voting ruling to Supreme Court

(CNN) – Ohio's secretary of state announced Tuesday he will move to appeal a federal court's recent ruling that overturned an early voting restriction in the state.

Jon Husted said he will ask the U.S. Supreme Court to consider the case. On Friday, a federal appeals court sided with the Obama campaign in its protest against a ban on voting in the final weekend–Saturday, Sunday, and Monday–before Election Day.

Schumer calls Bowles-Simpson 'trap' for middle class

Washington (CNNMoney) – Tax loopholes should be closed, and the savings should pay down deficits, not lower taxes for the wealthy, according to Charles Schumer, the No. 3 Senate Democrat from New York.

"It is an alluring prospect to cut taxes on the wealthiest people and somehow still reduce the deficit, but you can't have your cake and eat it, too," Schumer said Tuesday, in a speech at the National Press Club.

Obama and Romney: Middle class promises will be hard to keep

New York (CNNMoney) – For all that divides President Obama and Mitt Romney, both candidates swear they'll protect the middle class from higher taxes.

VIDEO: Obama 'surprised' by Romney, Durbin says

(CNN) - Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, a longtime friend of President Barack Obama, said Tuesday the president was "surprised" in last week's debate against Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

"He was shocked and surprised, many of us were. Mitt Romney came on that set at the first debate and said things which completely contradicted what he'd said in the campaign before. I think it caught the president a little bit by surprise. He won't be surprised again," Durbin said on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien."
