Washington (CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says he will follow the "water's edge" tradition of not criticizing President Barack Obama's policies during his international trip. But that doesn't mean his campaign back home can't get some help to do so.

The Romney campaign is sending high profile surrogates Thursday to three battleground states to act on his behalf.

The Battlegrounds: African-American turnout

Editor's note: The 2012 presidential race is CNN Chief National Correspondent John King's seventh campaign. King is traveling through battleground states, where the election will be decided, to find the voters who will determine whether President Barack Obama gets a second term or if the country needs the change in direction that Mitt Romney represents.

Philadelphia (CNN) - Paulette Beale shakes her head at the suggestion, then flashes a contagious smile.

"It's still history," she says, to rebut the notion there could be less intensity for President Barack Obama in the African-American community the second time around.

WASHINGTON/POLITICAL:

CNN: Obama takes on gun violence in New Orleans speech
Days after the Colorado movie theater massacre, President Barack Obama on Wednesday forcefully spoke out against gun violence, making perhaps some of his strongest comments yet as president on the issue. While the president said he stands by the Second Amendment and recognizes the traditions of hunting and gun ownership in the country, he told a crowd at a gathering for the National Urban League in New Orleans that there is work left to be done in tackling the problem.

CNN: Romney calls for a change in hearts, not gun laws
Mitt Romney on Wednesday reiterated his position that new gun laws are unnecessary in the wake of the Colorado movie theater massacre that left 12 dead and dozens wounded last week. "Well this person shouldn't have had any kind of weapons and bombs and other devices and it was illegal for him to have many of those things already," Romney said in an interview with NBC News. "But he had them. And so we can sometimes hope that just changing the law will make all bad things go away. It won't."
