Mitt Romney, stumping in Ohio on Thursday, promised over and over again to bring "big change" to the White House, as he began a two-day tour across the battleground state. "This is a critical time for our country, and the choice of paths we choose will have an enormous impact," he said. Running down a list of problems he says have only worsened under President Obama — poor-performing schools, rising debt, and stubborn joblessness — he added, "these challenges are big challenges. This election is, therefore, a big choice. And America wants to see big changes, and we're gonna bring big changes to get America stronger again." According to most polls, Obama still holds a lead in Ohio, although some are within the margin of error.
