LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – Republican Mitt Romney is seeking to refocus his campaign on the economy after days of distraction.

Romney on Thursday will promote energy proposals aimed at creating more than 3 million new jobs and opening up more areas for drilling off the coast of Virginia and North Carolina, two political battleground states.

Romney’s pivot to energy, a key component of his jobs agenda, comes as the national debate has turned away from the Republican candidate’s jobs message and toward issues like rape, abortion, welfare and Medicare just 2 1/2 months before Election Day.

Romney will discuss his energy plan in New Mexico. Aides say the proposals would result in more than $1 trillion in revenue for federal, state and local governments, plus millions of jobs.
