Romney working to connect personally with voters

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney is working to connect more personally with voters and refocus his campaign on the fight for convention delegates as he tries to recover from a difficult month.

But the former Massachusetts governor created fresh controversy Wednesday by saying he opposed a Senate Republican effort that critics say would limit insurance coverage of birth control. Romney quickly reversed himself.

Romney is trying to capitalize on Tuesday's victories in Arizona and Michigan and put to rest concerns within the GOP establishment about his inability to wrap up the nomination quickly.

Behind the scenes, Romney's aides spent Wednesday working to recalibrate the candidate's approach to next week's Super Tuesday contests, when 10 states will vote and Wyoming will begin its caucuses.
