(AP) Republican governors are working to rally voters to Mitt Romney by arguing that the Republican presidential nominee understands how to improve the country's business climate and that President Barack Obama doesn't.

The governors speaking Tuesday at the Republican National Convention were long on blame for the economy's sluggishness but only spoke generally about the changes Republicans would make by emphasizing the need to cut government spending and red tape.

The governors selected to speak serve some of the most critical swing states in the coming presidential election, such as Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

Some also signify efforts to connect with key voting blocs, such as Gov. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma and Brian Sandoval of Nevada, the state's first Hispanic governor.
