DES MOINES, Iowa — Two days ahead of the election, Republican Mitt Romney is renewing his pledge to work with Democrats on Capitol Hill if elected.

He's also promising to overturn Democrats' signature achievements.

The Republican presidential candidate says he'll begin to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law on day 1. He also wants to repeal Democrat-backed legislation that overhauled the nation's financial system.

Romney has shifted his message in recent weeks to focus on bipartisanship as he courts undecided moderate voters. He told Iowa supporters Sunday that he would meet regularly with quote, "good men and women on both sides of the aisle."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says Senate Democrats would do, quote, "everything in our power" to stop Romney's agenda.

Romney is campaigning in four states on Sunday.
