Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney's first traditional campaign trip of the general election, a six-state trek by bus, is aimed at swaying undecided voters living outside America's big cities.

To hear his advisers tell it, he'll be visiting the towns President Barack Obama forgot.

The former Massachusetts governor is planning to roll through at least 14 small cities and towns over five days on his "Every Town Counts" tour. His aides say he will stop in the kinds of places that are hurting because of the bad economy - not those, they say, that Obama has in mind when he speaks about how to make things better.

The tour begins in today New Hampshire and continues to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa and Michigan.
