DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — Mitt Romney — and his supporters — are making his final pitch to Iowa voters and it's all about electability.

Romney's campaign was lining up representatives to speak for Romney at events on Monday, a day before the caucuses.

Aides say the representatives will focus on Romney's business credentials and urge Iowans to vote for him because Democrats have shown that they think the former Massachusetts governor would be the president's toughest opponent.

Romney himself was holding a series of rallies Monday in eastern Iowa, where he did well in the 2008 caucuses. Romney focused entirely on President Barack Obama at the first of those events and said the election was a battle for the "soul of America."
