WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is right where he expected to be: taking on Mitt Romney and targeting him as a wishy-washy protector of the rich.
Seven months before the election, Obama is set to engage more directly with the help of an experienced, well-financed campaign organization.
The campaign for the White House took on a decidedly different feel on Wednesday, a two-man race for the first time.
Yet even as Republican Rick Santorum's withdrawal launched the general election in earnest, the contours of the Romney-Obama race were already clear.
Both sides will keep pounding voters with a ferocious debate over who has the best vision for jobs, economic security and giving Americans a shot at better life.
