WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is renewing his focus on his second-term agenda in the campaign's closing weeks.
The push is a response to criticism from Republicans, as well as some Democrats, that Obama has not clearly articulated a plan for the next four years.
The morning after the final presidential debate, Obama's campaign released a 20-page booklet called the "Blueprint for America's Future." The plan is a compilation of positions Obama has outlined previously, including spending more on education and boosting manufacturing jobs.
The campaign says Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and their surrogates will tout the second-term plan during campaign rallies in the final weeks before Election Day. The Democratic ticket is also using the revamped second-term agenda in television ads and in fliers mailed to battleground state voters.
