For the next several days, All Things Considered is going to take a few minutes to listen to stump speeches on the campaign trail. We'll hear from Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Joe Biden and first, President Obama in Iowa.
The Obama campaign on Wednesday escalated its attack on Mitt Romney's business career, with Vice President Joe Biden scheduled to aggressively question how Romney's management of Bain Capital might translate into running the U.S. economy.
On Monday, Obama's re-election campaign unveiled a new swing state ad questioning Romney's assertion that he was a job creator while running the private equity firm. The Romney campaign countered later in the day with its own ad.
