Hello, I’m Negar with VOA60 Elections. Fox News reports that President Obama will hold his first official campaign rallies next week in the key states of Ohio and Virginia. The states are important as Obama won both during the 2008 election. Meanwhile, the New York Times reports that Republican Mitt Romney is getting a message from his party: it’s time to go positive. Party leaders see the general election as the time to leave behind the negative tone and inspire party faithful with wider appeal. Newt Gingrich is about to help Romney with that goal. The Washington Post reports Gingrich will endorse Romney once he formally drops out of the race, despite the bitter attacks he launched against Romney during the Republican primaries. The endorsement adds to the many Romney has received in the past week, including former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani and former Texas Governor Rick Perry. That’s all for today. See you on the next VOA60 Elections.
