GLEN ALLEN, Va. — President Barack Obama is keeping up his attacks on the policies of rival Mitt Romney and his Republican allies.

During a campaign stop Saturday in Glen Allen, Va., just outside Richmond, the president cast Romney as a "pioneer of outsourcing" and said Romney's ideas are outdated and discredited.

Obama campaigned in a downpour, delivering a stump speech to a crowd in the congressional district represented by a chief Republican nemesis, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

The second day of Obama's Virginia tour came at the same time his campaign began airing an ad that attacks Romney's personal investments overseas and his business record.,

Romney is in New Hampshire with his family and doesn't plan any public campaign appearances until Tuesday.
