The presidential campaign is switching into high gear as former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and President Obama are stumping on the campaign trail.
Romney continued to highlight the president's poor performance on the economy and the country's massive debt problem this week.
"The road we're on has a president spend about a trillion dollars more every year than we take in, putting us on a course to become like Greece." Romney said during a GOP Lincoln Day dinner in Pennsylvania, Sunday.
"And if I'm president, we're not going to go down that road anymore," he said.
Meanwhile, President Obama is on a blitz to keep the cost of college loans from soaring for millions of students. He is wooing young voters and taking his message to three states strategically important to his re-election bid.
Before Obama's road trip got under way, his Republican opponent Mitt Romney found a way to steal some thunder from the president's campaign argument: He agreed with it.
The competitors are now on record for freezing the current interest rates on a popular federal loan for poorer and middle-class students.
The president will speaks today at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Colorado at Boulder, and then the University of Iowa on Wednesday.
All three universities are in states considered competitive in the election.
