Romney vows to be more aggressive on campaign trail

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney pledged on Sunday that he would campaign more aggressively in swing states as the race to the White House heats up ahead of November 6 election.

Romney made the comments to reporters aboard his campaign plane and follows criticism from within his own party about the amount of time he has spent raising funds in comparison to speaking to voters.

"I think the fundraising season is probably getting a bit quieter. I would rather spend the time in key states," Romney said.

With just over 40 days until the general election, Romney has kicked off a week of campaigning in battleground states, starting with Colorado and Ohio.

In 2008, Obama claimed victory in Colorado with 9 points over Republican John McCain. Before that, the state voted Republican in every presidential election since 1964, except in 1992.

Romney is currently neck-and-neck with Obama in national surveys though polls in swing states such as Ohio and Colorado indicate Obama has a slightly wider lead.

Following Sunday night's event in Denver, Romney will visit Pueblo, Colorado on Monday and head to Ohio on Tuesday after a brief visit to New York to speak at the Clinton Global Initiative, where Obama will also speak.
