Romney campaign begins quiet push for African American voters

That plan, still in its early stages, ran headlong into the harsh political realities on the ground in Philadelphia on Thursday, when Romney was treated to a hostile welcome on his first campaign swing through a poor black neighborhood this year.
A few dozen protesters met him with chants of “Get out, Romney, get out!”
