DES MOINES, Iowa - President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney say the Supreme Court decision upholding the president's health care law gives each of them advantages in the roughly dozen states they are contesting most aggressively.
Obama's team says the decision has swelled, by the thousands, the ranks of campaign volunteers in states he won in 2008 and hopes to win again.
Romney's camp has claimed success using the ruling as a fundraising tool. It says millions in small-dollar contributions have poured in from across the battleground map as the law's opponents have come to see electing Romney as the last hope for getting the law repealed.
Both campaigns say the groundswell is on their side and could make the difference come November.
