JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Mitt Romney is reaching out to the thousands of military voters who live in and around Jacksonville, Fla. He told a crowd in Jacksonville today that the world "is not a safer place right now," partly because of Iran's nuclear efforts.
During the Republican National Convention earlier this week, Romney accused President Barack Obama of not taking Iran's threat seriously enough, and not showing enough support for Iran's arch-enemy, Israel.
Romney campaigned in Jacksonville with running mate Paul Ryan.
Both had been in Ohio earlier in the day. Ryan attended the Ohio State University game in Columbus against his alma mater, Miami University of Ohio. And Romney also had football on his mind, telling a crowd in Cincinnati that he would lead America to a "winning season."
He vowed to "cut the deficit and get us on track to a balanced budget."
