Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney penned an editorial Sunday, saying that the United States is “in need of serious change” in a final push to gain momentum ahead of Tuesday’s vote in what has been a tight race.
“We are at a turning point. The decision we make on Tuesday will affect not only us but also generations yet to be born,” Romney wrote in the editorial, published in USA Today. He characterized his plan as one that is “fundamentally different” than President Barack Obama’s vision.
“This election will determine our policies on job growth and debt, on whether our standard of living rises or falls, and whether we have unity at home,” Romney wrote.
“Four years ago, we were promised a new beginning—but it turned out to be a false start,” Romney said, hitting at Obama’s claims four years ago during his first election bid.
Obama campaigned in Florida, saying that he is the candidate that voters can trust.
“When you’re trying to compare the two candidates’ agendas and you’re talking about change, you know I know what real change looks like, because I’ve fought for it,” the president said, according to CNN.
“Because I’ve brought it. Because I’ve got the scars to prove it. Because I’ve got gray hair doing it,” Obama added.
