COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is preparing for his second debate with President Obama but taking time to tell voters in Ohio that enthusiasm for him is surging both in this critical state and across the country.

Obama was hunkering down Saturday in Virginia to go over the game plan for the town hall-style debate with Romney. But his weekly radio and Internet address on Saturday spoke of an industry that's critical to Ohio, another battleground state and perhaps the most important to his Republican opponent's White House hopes.

"We refused to throw in the towel and do nothing. We refused to let Detroit go bankrupt," Obama said in the address. "GM is back. Ford and Chrysler are growing again. Together, our auto industry has created nearly a quarter of a million new jobs right here in America."
