• The Romneys and their grandchildren (Joe Raedle/Getty Images)NEWARK, Ohio—Democratic protesters who have been trailing Mitt Romney's bus tour across the country finally caught up the Republican nominee, shouting loud enough for the candidate to hear as he spoke at a rally here.

    "GO HOME ROMNEY! GO HOME ROMNEY!" about 30 protestors shouted in unison as the former Massachusetts governor took the stage here at a historic town square in the shadow of Newark City Hall.

    Ann Romney, who was on stage introducing her husband, briefly acknowledged the group, telling supporters here, "We got some distracters out there, but... we can be just as loud about how much we love this country."

  • Romney in Brunswick (Evan Vucci/AP)BRUNSWICK, Ohio—The torrential rain began well before Mitt Romney arrived here for a Father's Day breakfast in the parking lot behind a local restaurant.

    Under dark skies and the occasional ominous clap of thunder, hundreds of people sought to protect themselves anyway they could. Some held Romney signs above their heads to block the rain, while others quickly threw on makeshift ponchos constructed out of black garbage bags. Meanwhile, as the clock ticked by and the rain grew heavier, a few gave up and just headed back to their cars.

    But a strange thing happened when the candidate rolled up in his campaign bus a few minutes behind schedule. The rain let up, and the sun came out—a sign from Mother Nature that Romney just couldn't overlook when he finally took the stage.

    "This is courage. You guys out here wearing garbage bags," Romney said, eying his drenched supporters. "I guess you didn't know the rain was going to come. I didn't know it was going to rain this morning… But it looks like the sun is coming out, and I think that's a metaphor for the country. The sun is coming out guys! The dark clouds are about to part!"

    Rick Santorum says he would not take a job in a potential Mitt Romney administration, should the presumptive Republican nominee win the presidential election.

    "I want to help Mitt Romney get elected president," Santorum said on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday. "I'll be happy to help him and advise him if he wants my advice as president. But, no, my objective right now is to serve my family and provide for them. I've got two kids in college."

    When CNN host Candy Crowley told Santorum that it did not sound like "a flat no," the former Pennsylvania senator countered: "Yes, it's -- it's pretty much a flat no. I mean, it's not because I don't want to help Governor Romney [and] I don't want to be a part of him having a successful presidency. It's just, for me, it's a matter of my priorities and my time of being a husband and father and I sort of have to take care--I have to take care--of them."

    Earlier in the interview, Santorum criticized his former Republican rival for not coming down harder on President Obama's decision to halt the deportation of as many as 800,000 young illegal immigrants.

    "He's trying to walk the line," Santorum said of Romney. "He's trying to walk a line as not to sound like he's hostile to Latinos--swing voters--and in very important states. But at the same time, I think you need to hammer the president on this now habitual abuse of power."
