Greensboro, NC -- What do Marco Rubio, Clint Eastwood and Mitt Romney all have in common? Yes, they are all Republicans and yes they all took the stage the last night of the RNC.

But all three made sure RNC viewers and voters got the point:  President Obama isn't a bad person, but he hasn't done the job we needed.

The tone of the campaign seemed to change overnight! GOP VP Candidate Paul Ryan and Governor Chris Christie both were on the attack the second night of the RNC.

So, why the change? And will it last? Greensboro College Political Science Professor Rebecca Klase joined us on News 2 at 6pm on Friday to talk about the tone of the campaign.

Klase said the tone seemed to change. The thinking, she believes is to make Mitt Romney more touchy-feely. She says people still like the President and still trust him, even if they don't like what's happening. To lure some folks over, Romney needed to take another tone.

Another thought is that women don't like negative talk, and this was his way to appeal to women. Klase doesn't believe the tone will last though. She says, when the debates start, the tone is likely to  change back to what it was.
