Losing ground, Romney is looking to shift campaign
He's got opportunities, starting with a big battleground-state bus tour beginning Saturday. Then comes his critical running-mate announcement and the TV hoopla of a national convention, where he'll accept the nomination he's sought for nearly a decade.
If the past few days are any indication, Romney will spend the coming weeks trying to gain ground largely by trying to drag Obama down on a host of issues. It's a shift away from the all-economy, all-the-time strategy of the past several months.
