Obama: The young-voter push

“While the GOP prepares to officially embrace Mitt Romney as its presidential nominee next week, President Obama is focusing his attention on courting young voters that the campaign believes can help push him over the top in three battleground states,” USA Today writes. “Obama will campaign at three college campuses on Tuesday and Wednesday — the second and third days of the Republican National Convention— as he looks to energize young voters in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia.”

“A Texas county judge who declared the country could dissolve into “civil war” if President Barack Obama is re-elected this fall is facing backlash from Democrats who are demanding he resign,” the New York Daily News writes. “But Judge Tom Head, a Republican from Lubbock County, tried to squelch the flames Wednesday, saying his comments were taken out of context.”
