ATLANTA (AP) — President Barack Obama is pledging to be an "insourcing" leader who will bring jobs that have moved overseas back to the U.S.

The president was building upon his campaign's recent attacks on Republican rival Mitt Romney's business record. The Obama team says the private equity firm Romney formerly ran invested in companies that sent jobs to China and India.

Obama says the American people need a president in the White House who will bring jobs back to the U.S., not ship them overseas.

The president spoke at a 500 person fundraising reception, with ticket prices started at $500 per person. He had additional fundraisers planned later Tuesday in Florida.
