President Barack Obama is on a blitz to keep the cost of college loans from soaring for millions of students. He is wooing young voters and taking his message to three states strategically important to his re-election bid.

Before Obama got his road trip under way, his Republican opponent Mitt Romney found a way to steal some thunder from the
president's campaign argument: He agreed with it.

The competitors are now on record for freezing the current interest rates on a popular federal loan for poorer and middle-class students.

The president speaks Tuesday at the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill and the University of Colorado at Boulder, and then the University of Iowa on Wednesday.

All three universities are in states considered competitive in
the election.
