As the presidential election is approaching in the U.S.,and President Obama are focusing more on California. They are campaigning in the state with full vigor, as it is very important to get support from there in order to win the presidential race.
Fundraising is being done in the state by both sides and greater attention is being paid to get the backing of the people of California. The residents of the state are also responding well to the campaigns and giving donations.
"Both in terms of money and time and resources, Californians know the majority of what they contribute, those efforts or dollars or phone calls, are probably going to be applied elsewhere. People understand it's not just for us; it's for a greater good," Ken Solomon, chief executive of the Tennis Channel and co-chairman of Obama's Southern California fundraising effort, commented, as reported on latimes.com.
The candidates are trying to beat each other by raising questions on their fundraising campaigns. The funds raised by Obama are much higher than those by Romney in the entertainment industry, whereas Romney is taking the lead in other sectors such as finance and agriculture. President Obama started his campaigns quite a long time earlier than Romney, whose fundraising campaigns began with full momentum only a couple of months ago.
Mitt Romney is carrying out his campaign activities with greater efforts to have a strong position in the state. “Talk to them about this election and what it means about their future. In some cases, they haven’t been given a full understanding of what’s at stake in this election. They don’t realize the unfairness, the unfairness of a president who is taking from their future to pay for benefits for us today,” he said to the voters in an attempt to have them create awareness within their families and social circles, as reported in the latimes.com report.
Romney criticizes Obama for not recovering the economy faster from the recession. He promises a better future, one with financial stability, which is the biggest concern of the common man. President Obama often clarifies in his speeches that the recession developed over a long time period and therefore its recovery will also take some time. The people of America are, however, tired of the continuing economic problems and want a quick way out.
