ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Declaring that the nation is in a "jobs crisis," Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is charging ahead with his economic arguments in spite of unemployment dropping to its lowest level since President Barack Obama took office.

Romney all but ignored the positive jobs numbers while campaigning Friday night in Florida, instead highlighting his strong debate performance as he seeks to overcome Obama's narrow lead in the polls.

Obama says the drop in unemployment from 8.1 percent to 7.8 percent is a reminder that the country has come too far to turn back now.

Obama is planning to spend Saturday celebrating the 20th wedding anniversary he put aside when it fell on the day of the Denver debate.

Romney is set to speak at a campaign event near Orlando, Fla.

    And if you believe the recent employment numbers put out by the Administration, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell to you. The only gains in employment have been in Government jobs. Expanding an already-bloated Government is not exactly something to brag about.
