(AP) President Barack Obama talks about his single mother's struggles and the grandmother who helped raise him. He tells voters he misses his wife when they're apart, and she tells voters he's still cute, even with gray hair.

The president and first lady have been frequently sharing personal tidbits on the campaign trail, seeking to remind people of one big reason they voted for Obama in the first place a lot of them like him personally. The president is also countering Republican rival Mitt Romney's assertions that Obama is running a campaign of division and hate.

But it's not all family stories. Obama also is pummeling Romney with negative television ads.
