Obama Wooing Veterans for 2012

KEN THOMAS, Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s campaign intends to highlight the president’s record with military veterans next year. Republicans are vowing to change high unemployment among veterans in their pitches to military voters.

Next year’s presidential contest could involve two major party nominees without any military service for the first time in nearly 70 years, adding a new dimension to the push for support for veterans and military families.

Obama did not serve in the military nor did leading Republican contenders Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.

Several states that will be heavily contested next year have a significant military presence, including Florida, North Carolina and Virginia.
