Obama asks New Hampshire voters for support
WINDHAM, N.H. (AP) -- President Barack Obama is urging New Hampshire voters to ignore the negative ads and claims by Republican challenger Mitt Romney's campaign as the presidential campaign heads into the final three months.
The Democratic president spoke to supporters Saturday afternoon at Windham High School. He now heads to another campaign event in Rochester.
The president appealed to middle-class voters, saying his economic, health care and education policies would yield a greater benefit than Romney and running-mate Rep. Paul Ryan.
Supporters, who crowded the high school's gym, said they were honored by the president's visit to the small town. But some expressed that they believe there's a great deal of election fatigue in the battleground state.
Romney, who owns a home on Lake Winnipesaukee, will visit New Hampshire on Monday.
