Both campaigns jumped on the news this morning that employers added 171,000 jobs in October.

The unemployment rate ticked up slightly to 7.9 percent. At a campaign rally in Hillard Ohio, President Obama welcomed the news, but said there is more work to do. 

Mitt Romney appeared before voters in Wisconsin and warned that re electing the President would be harmful to the recovery.

For more analysis on the state of the economy, we're joined by David Jackson, professor of political science at Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
