Romney’s subtle shift to general election mode
Philip RuckerMILWAUKEE — To watch Mitt Romney campaign across Wisconsin the past few days has been to wonder whether the Republican primary is still going on.
Romney shifted subtly into general election mode. He overhauled his rhetoric about President Obama and offered a new slogan: “Obama’s Government-Centered Society.” He auditioned a potential running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who has developed chemistry with Romney over four straight days together on the campaign trail. And Romney hinted at how he hopes to smooth over his positions on issues such as birth control and immigration to win over voters this fall.
At the conclusion of a speech in Appleton, Wis., on Friday, Romney asked voters to join him and “walk together this Tuesday — and take another step every day until November 6th.”
