Hispanics The Focus As Romney Pushes Ahead

Hispanics are the focus Thursday as the presidential race moves to Florida.

President Barack Obama is trying to keep Republican challenger Mitt Romney on the defensive as the candidates campaign in the swing state. Immigration will be a prime topic.

But Romney is still being forced to clarify comments secretly captured on video in which he said 47 percent of Americans believe they are "victims" entitled to government help. He's looking to Hispanic voters to help get back on track. The Republican nominee is also planning a three-day Ohio bus tour next week.

At a Miami forum Wednesday hosted by the Spanish-language television network Univision, Romney said his campaign is quote, "about the 100 percent in America."

Obama will speak at the same Univision forum Thursday.
