FIRST ON CNN: Boehner expects temporary fix to avoid fiscal cliff

Wadsworth, Ohio (CNN) – Throwing cold water on any major effort during the lame duck Congress to reach a deal that would avert the fiscal cliff, House Speaker John Boehner told CNN on Sunday the best outcome would be some sort of temporary fix to postpone the cuts, but admitted even that would be tough to get through.

Sitting down for an interview with CNN at a sports bar in Ohio, Boehner said "lame duck Congresses aren't known for doing big things and probably shouldn't do big things, so I think the best you can hope for is a bridge."

Paul Ryan focuses on auto, defense cuts in Ohio

Mansfield, Ohio (CNN) - Vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan focused on shuttered auto plants and defense cuts at a campaign rally in north central Ohio on Sunday.

The Republican presidential ticket has struggled to overcome President Barack Obama's edge in the crucial battleground state perhaps in part because of Mitt Romney's opposition in 2008 to a federal auto bailout of the U.S. auto industry.

Romney adviser lays out Pennsylvania strategy

(CNN) - A top adviser for Mitt Romney's campaign explained Sunday why he thinks the GOP nominee can win Pennsylvania, a Democratic-leaning battleground that Romney's team has lumped into its final swing-state push.

"You have Obama who is under-performing, and we're over-performing and as a result you have president in a critical battleground state below 50 (percent) and it's presented us an opportunity," Kevin Madden said on a flight with reporters.
