ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: President Barack Obama took a break from preparing for the presidential debate with Mitt Romney to stop by a local campaign office Sunday and call volunteers. Obama is spending the weekend at a resort in Williamsburg, Virginia, where he is preparing for the next debate on Tuesday with the former governor of Massachusetts. Senator John Kerry will reprise his role impersonating the Republican presidential candidate. Obama advisers David Axelrod, David Plouffe and others are working with the president to craft a sharper performance after his lackluster encounter with Romney during their first debate. Virginia is a battleground state, and the president's choice of location for debate preparation not far from Washington is not an accident. As he did during his stay in Nevada before the first debate, Obama made an unscheduled stop in the area to generate local press coverage during his stay.
