A day after the third and final presidential debate, President Obama and Mitt Romney hit the campaign trail on Tuesday to sell their respective messages to voters and drum up enthusiasm. With only two weeks remaining before Election Day on Nov. 6, both campaigns spent much of the day arguing over who was in the lead. Team Romney crowed that Obama is "desperate" to halt the GOP candidate's momentum, but the Obama campaign shot back that it is winning or even in almost all of the swing states, and enjoying particularly strong numbers in Ohio, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Both candidates have a packed schedule over the next two weeks, with plans to hit up multiple states a day to make their closing arguments.
