Our 2nd story OutFront – Mitt Romney's full court press for the middle class.
Romney was campaigning in Virginia today, where he made another play for the all-important voting bloc, reminding the crowd of the Vice President's comments earlier this week that the middle class has been "buried" for the last four years.
That's to be expected, but last night on Fox News, he made another, more surprising plea to these same voters – he apologized for his comments about 47% of Americans who he said pay no income tax and feel entitled to government handouts.
So what's the real reason behind this mea culpa and his newfound focus on the middle class? And will it turn this race around? CNN contributor and columnist John Avlon, Democratic strategist Jamal Simmons, and former Pawlenty communications director Ann Marie Hauser come OutFront to discuss.
