Mitt Romney headed out from Tampa, Florida Friday morning. Fresh off of closing out the Republican National Convention last night where he accepted the nomination for President.
He wove a speech of personal stories and political philosophies and offered a promise of a new direction. "President Obama promised to begin to stop the rising tide and to heal the planet," he said. "I promise to make things better for you and your families."
Today he made a stop in Louisiana to tour flood damage there.
Running mate Paul Ryan traveled solo to the key battleground state of Virginia, telling supporters in Richmond that after four years of economic troubles, it was time for a change.
The White House says President Barack Obama had made his decision to visit Louisiana on Monday before Romney's announcement that he would be going to the state today to see damage from Hurricane Isaac.
Obama will also examine water and wind damage from the storm.
Obama spent much of Friday in El Paso, Texas talking with military troops saying if re-elected he'll do more for military families.
Democrats are now marching toward Charlotte, North Carolina where their convention opens on Tuesday.
