In the days since Republicans lost an election many in the party thought was theirs, chatter has been bubbling about what the GOP should do to recover.
Seizing on fresh evidence of economic sluggishness, Republican challenger Mitt Romney said Friday that President Barack Obama inherited a bad situation when he took office and then “made the problem worse.” Obama looked ahead to the second term he’s hoping to win.
Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that America is not in decline and that the Republican presidential ticket is in denial about the improving economy.
Playing it safe, Romney tried not to unnerve undecided voters who are wary of another U.S.-led war, or to upend a race that remains remarkably tight with two weeks to go.
This is the second presidential election in which early voting has been available in Illinois, and it has become popular.
If passed, presidential candidates would have to provide an official record of birth and citizenship when filing with the Missouri Secretary of State’s office.
