GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — President Barack Obama is closing the final days of the presidential campaign by declaring that rival Mitt Romney is not the agent of change he portrays himself to be. Instead, Obama is asking for four more years to complete changes he’s been trying to usher in since his election four years ago.

Obama told an airport rally in Green Bay, Wis., that his administration has met many of his goals but hasn’t finished the job.

Thursday’s rally was the first of three political stops for Obama, his first campaign outing since Superstorm Sandy struck on Monday.

A day after touring New Jersey damage with Republican Gov. Chris Christie, Obama said the storm was a reminder that political leaders can put aside partisanship to address the country’s needs.
