Morrisville, Pennsylvania (CNN) - If Mitt Romney is upset with Gov. Chris Christie for praising President Obama, he didn't show it Sunday night.
In fact, the GOP presidential candidate singled out the fiery New Jersey governor in a speech to 25,000 outside Philadelphia, lauding Christie's response to Superstorm Sandy.
Portsmouth, New Hampshire (CNN) - Mitt and Ann Romney made a sentimental return to New Hampshire Saturday during a campaign swing so tightly scheduled the couple did not even sleep at their nearby home.
Running short on sleep but with the end of the campaign three days away, the Romneys thanked an audience of roughly 1,000 supporters who braved chilly temperatures to hear the GOP presidential candidate speak.
Roanoke, Virginia (CNN) - Mitt Romney effectively ended a two-day truce on the campaign trail Thursday, picking up again his attacks on the president after two days of less partisan rhetoric in the wake of the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy.
At his first stop on a three-rally swing through Virginia, the GOP presidential nominee launched into a new criticism of Barack Obama, knocking the president's idea of streamlining his cabinet by installing a "Secretary of Business" who could handle a variety of tasks currently handled by different departments.
Miami, Fla. (CNN) – Mitt Romney resumed his normal campaign schedule but aimed to strike a "positive tone" Wednesday as people continued to recover from the aftereffects of Sandy, a senior adviser said.
But in a sign that softer tone only extended to a certain point, adviser Kevin Madden would not answer CNN National Political Correspondent Jim Acosta's question about the president's handling of the weather disaster that has upended both candidates' schedules in the final days of the race.
Avon Lake, Ohio (CNN) - Mitt Romney made a public foray into behind-the-scenes campaign strategy Monday in Ohio, urging his supporters to help him win the expectations game in the days before the election.
The candidate has been encouraging audiences to vote early, saying that would free them to help others get to the polls on Election Day. But in a short speech to an overflow audience in Avon Lake, Ohio, Romney peeled back the curtain and explained to voters why their early vote could help his effort.
Marion, Ohio (CNN) - Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan increasingly framed the upcoming election as a historic choice about the country's future, telling Ohio audiences Sunday they were up to the challenge of bridging Washington's partisan divide.
“This is not your run-of-the-mill presidential election," Ryan told an audience in Findlay, saying the outcome November 6 would determine "what kind of people we're going to be."
Kissimmee, Florida (CNN) - Mitt Romney pushed through Florida on Saturday, assuring energetic audiences his campaign was on the upswing and promising to usher in a new era of bipartisanship.
Romney opened his three-stop bus tour by sounding a confident note in Pensacola, where he told an audience of roughly 10,000 that the end of President Barack Obama's term in office was in sight.
