Romney follows Obama to Grand Junction high school

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is hitting back at President Barack Obama.

During a campaign stop in Grand Junction on Tuesday, Romney called Obama the "outsourcer-in-chief," in response to accusations that as private equity executive Romney helped send jobs to China and elsewhere.

Romney branded Obama an "extreme liberal" who is trying to raise taxes on businesses.

The former Massachusetts governor held a town-hall-style meeting at Central High School in Grand Junction.

It's the same school where president Barack Obama held a town hall almost exactly three years ago, when he was selling his health care overhaul.

Romney was also in Aspen on Monday for a private fundraiser.
