WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) -- President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are each forgoing time on the campaign trail in favor of hours of intense debate preparation ahead of their next face-to-face meeting.

Obama, seeking to rebound from a dismal performance at the first debate, is huddling Sunday with advisers at a sprawling riverfront resort in Williamsburg, Va. Romney retreated to his Boston-area home where the Republican nominee is working to replicate his commanding turn on the debate stage.

The days devoted to debate preparations underscore just how important the next face-off, which falls exactly three weeks from Election Day, is to both campaigns. Millions of Americans are already casting their ballots through early voting, meaning there are few opportunities to recover from slip-ups in what remains an exceedingly close race.
