The Obama campaign has another new TV spot, this one a positive look at his record on equal pay for women.

But Mitt Romney is outraising the president by a healthy margin, in large part because of his ties to the business community and Wall Street.

The Obama ground game will be key to countering Romney's potential financial advantage.

The Associated Press has put out its own national poll showing a much tighter race than Bloomberg did yesterday.

Obama is back up in Florida, according to Quinnipiac.

And the Supreme Court might rule on the constitutionality of the health care law today.

What else is happening?
