Obama Focuses on Middle Class in Weekend Va. Swing

July 14, 2012

President Barack Obama is turning up the heat on Republican Mitt Romney in the electoral battleground of Virginia.

He's appealing directly to the middle class to reject Romney as a wealthy Wall Street insider who sent American jobs overseas.

He ended a two-day, five-city swing through the state on Saturday in a driving thunderstorm. His light blue shirt was matted to his skin as he addressed several hundred soaked supporters outside a reconstructed Civil War-era tavern near Richmond.

His final Virginia stop was set for Saturday afternoon in suburban Washington, D.C.

He said Romney's Republicans believe in a top-down economy where taxes are cut and regulations relaxed for the wealthy.

Republicans countered each Obama visit, attacking his health care reform plan, soaring deficits and tax increases to follow.
