Like many Americans, President Obama and presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney rang in the Fourth of July with parades, picnics and fireworks. But that doesn’t mean the election was far from their minds.

Romney, who is vacationing with his family in Wolfeboro, N.H., walked with a crowd of supporters with the banner, “New Hampshire Stands With Mitt.” He also delivered a speech from the back of a pickup truck to voters. 

Obama also hugged and high-fived supporters. After presiding over a naturalization ceremony for active service members — and renewing his election year call for immigration reform — he and the First Lady hosted their third annual Independence Day picnic for service members and their families on the South Lawn.
