Romney campaign moves out of North Carolina: "It's a head fake," says DNC

The Romney campaign today said it is starting to shift members of its team out of North Carolina. That's big news, because in 2008, President Barack Obama became the first democrat to carry the state in 32 years.

With Mitt Romney's widening lead in the polls, his campaign has decided to reshuffle its resources from North Carolina to crucial battleground states like Ohio.

Romney hits restart on key issues in push for middle class

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.

The jobs numbers – a boost or a stumbling block for President Obama?

OutFront tonight – the war over work.

The jobs numbers released today had both President Obama and Mitt Romney spinning different stories about what exactly they mean for the future of our economy and our country.

First, Obama said it was clearly a very good sign, referencing the fact that the unemployment level was at its lowest level since he took office in early 2009. It currently sits a 7.8%, below the magic 8% line that we've mentioned many times would make it much harder for Obama to win re-election – no president has been re-elected with unemployment over 8% since FDR in the 1930s.
