Romney wants to shift focus back to economy

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Republican Mitt Romney is trying to
return the focus of his campaign to the sluggish economic recovery.
The presumptive GOP nominee for president has been restating his
opposition to gay marriage and shrugging off a newspaper report
that he bullied a gay classmate in prep school.
His schedule isn't helping. On Friday, Romney is set to discuss
jobs and the economy in North Carolina, the state that just
approved a constitutional ban on same-sex unions that helped turn
attention to gay rights.
Also likely to raise cultural rather than economic issues is
Romney's commencement address Saturday at Liberty University. The
Virginia institution founded by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell is the
nation's largest evangelical university.
