By Justin Sink and Ian Swanson – Mitt Romney went on offense Tuesday (Oct 2) ahead of his crucial first debate against President Obama, adding fresh details to his policies while capitalizing on a blunder by Vice President Biden.
Separately, Romney’s campaign seized on a gaffe by Biden Tuesday that forced Team Obama to engage in damage control on the debate’s eve.
Combined, Biden’s gaffe and Romney’s tax proposal added up to a good day for the Republican, who has had precious few of those over the past few weeks.
