Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is reshaping his message from an all-economic pitch to an all-out challenge to what he argues is a failed status quo, aides said, taking a risk with barely 50 days to go in the campaign.

A top Romney adviser confirmed that former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie will have an elevated role in shaping the campaign message for the GOP nominee and that it will focus more tightly on a change-versus-status-quo strategy.
