Campaigning For Victory, Romney Speeches Shift

NEWINGTON, N.H. (AP) -- From an airport runway on a cold New Hampshire morning, Mitt Romney faced 2,000 supporters and delivered the same speech he had given the day before -- three times on the day before, actually.

Romney told his supporters on Saturday, "I won't just represent one party, I'll represent one nation."

His stump speech is a carefully crafted 15 minutes that opens a window into campaign strategy. For the Republican nominee, it's an evolving tool that has shifted sharply in recent weeks to appeal to the political center.

Let there be no doubt that Romney, who once described himself as "severely conservative," is aggressively courting the narrow slice of undecided voters -- largely women and moderates -- who have yet to settle on a candidate.
