WASHINGTON D.C. (CBS) -- Voters in North Carolina, Indiana and West Virginia will go to the polls tomorrow. They will get to choose between Mitt Romney and Ron Paul for the republican presidential nomination.

Mitt Romney appeared unconcerned about tomorrow's primary elections, as he watched his hometown Boston Celtics in the NBA playoffs.

The 107 delegates at stake are still not enough to help Romney clinch the nomination, but he is the likely nominee and President Obama is already taking aim at his eventual opponent.

President Obama said, "Governor Romney doesn't seem to get that."

The president tried to portray Romney as out of touch with average Americans holding his first campaign rallies this weekend in Ohio and Virginia.

President Obama said, "Why else would he want to spend trillions more on tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans?"

Today Governor Romney campaigns in Cleveland.

Marco Rubio one of the names most often mentioned as a vice presidential candidate is still trying to deflect the question.

Another potential choice, NH Senator Kelly Ayotte, was more willing to address it.

Ayotte said, "I would say I have, some would say, better experience than Barack Obama had when he was a Senator and ran."

Ron Paul does not have any campaign events on the schedule.
