Romney Tries to Shift Focus

Mitt Romney is trying to shift the national focus back to the economy by shrugging off discussions of gay rights after President Obama's historic endorsement of same-sex marriage Wednesday. His schedule is making that tough, since on Friday he heads to North Carolina, the state that just approved a ban on same-sex unions. He'll also give a commencement address Saturday at Liberty University, the Virginia school founded by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell, who vehemently opposed gay rights.
