Romney's 'Doing Fine?' becomes '¿Van Bien?'

(CNN) - Mitt Romney unveiled a Spanish language version of an English ad he released last week targeting President Barack Obama's record on the economy, days after the president announced a new policy aimed at stopping the deportation of some young illegal immigrants.

Monday's translated spot, "¿Van Bien?," mirrors the "Doing Fine?" spot made public by the campaign Thursday as part of a media buy in seven battleground states. The campaign did not respond to a request for comment regarding where the Spanish version will run.

Obama raises cash with some celebrity help

(CNN) - President Barack Obama used a pair of fund-raisers in New York Thursday to further the message he laid out in a speech earlier in the day in Ohio, painting the November election as a choice between two starkly different visions for the United States.

"What we're going to have to do is present the choice," Obama told a group of supporters at the home of actress Sarah Jessica Parker, according to a pool report. "You're the tie-breaker, you're the ultimate arbiter."

Romney backer offers soft Obama praise

Washington (CNN) – Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia on Sunday partially credited President Barack Obama’s policies with his state's relatively low unemployment rate, but also said the figure would be better with a President Mitt Romney.

The Romney backer said stimulus programs supported by the president helped his state in the short-term with health care, education and balancing the budget but would not help cut the unemployment rate long-term.

Axelrod launches attack on Romney's home turf

(CNN) – The Obama re-election team launched an all-out offense against Mitt Romney's record while governor of Massachusetts on Thursday with his top strategist arguing the "failed" policies supported by Romney as governor mirror those he now espouses.

On the steps of the Massachusetts State House, David Axelrod compared the promises Romney makes on the trail to those he delivered to Massachusetts voters, policies that he said led, among other things, to an increase in taxes and debt, a drop in job creation and cuts to education.

Gingrich down on super PACs despite his own

(CNN) – Former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich on Thursday lamented the use of super PACs in modern campaigning, predicting a "mess" they will create in the fall campaign.

"I think you watch this fall, between the Obama super PACs, the Romney super PACs, the conservative super PACs, the liberal super PACs, it's going to be a mess and people are going to be sick of it," Gingrich said on MSNBC. "It's really unfortunate. It's not the way a great nation should govern itself."

Poll: Romney favorability rating increases

(CNN) – Mitt Romney received a jump in his favorability rating aided by increased support among female voters, according to a new survey.

The Washington-Post ABC News poll released Wednesday showed 41% of Americans held a positive view of the all-but-certain Republican presidential nominee. Although Romney still trails President Barack Obama's 52%, he experienced a six-point bump from results released just over a month ago.
