Obama, Romney race to finish line neck-and-neck

AFP, BRISTOW, Virginia

On Saturday, the rivals chased one another though the territory that will decide whether Obama will win a second term or whether Romney will recapture the White House for Republicans.

Romney and his running mate, US Representative Paul Ryan trumpeted a “put country first” message to voters as he campaigned in New Hampshire, Iowa and Colorado.

In Milwaukee, Obama had pop star Katy Perry — wearing a tight blue dress embossed with the incumbent’s “Forward” slogan — warm up a crowd estimated at 20,000.

Obama hit out at what he said was Romney’s plan to let Wall Street return to the days when it had “free rein to do whatever” it liked, which he said had led to economic woes “we’re still cleaning our way out of.”
