Romney Taking Break, But Under Pressure On Finances.

Mitt Romney is taking the weekend off from campaigning. But as he relaxes with his family in New Hampshire, pressure is growing for him to release more of his personal financial information.

President Barack Obama's campaign has released an ad with a jab at Romney's overseas investments.

Now some prominent Republicans are leaning on Mitt Romney to make more financial disclosures. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley says Romney should release all the documents requested of him, adding: "If you have things to hide, then maybe you're doing things wrong."

Democrats seized on his words, prompting Bentley to later say he's wasn't trying to suggest that Romney does have something to hide.

The Obama campaign ad also attacks Romney's record at a private equity firm, charging that Bain Capital shipped American jobs to China and Mexico. It also charges that as Massachusetts governor, Romney sent state jobs to India.

Romney is demanding the president apologize for the attacks.
