Mitt Romney makes final stop in Florida

in Uncategorized by

Mitt Romney made an Election Eve appearance in Sanford Monday as part of the “Romney-Ryan Real Recovery Road Rally” in the run-up to Tuesday’s election.

“We need every single vote in Florida,” Romney told a crowd of a few thousand supporters at an airport hangar at Orlando-Sanford International Airport. “We can begin a better tomorrow, tomorrow.”

Romney told the crowd we are just “one day away from the first day of a new beginning” and that he is confident that, under his leadership, “America is about to come roaring back.”

Romney also attempted to seize the mantle of change that swept Obama into office in 2008, insisting he will bring “real change,” to Washington.

“I not only promise change, I have a record of achieving it.” Romney said to cheers.

Romney discussed what he will do on his first day in office, pledging not to waste time. “I won’t spend my time trying to pass partisan legislation rather than working to help America get back to work,” the former Massachusetts governor said.

Gov. Rick Scott, former Gov. Jeb Bush, former Sen. Mel Martinez, Rep. Connie Mack and CFO Jeff Atwater were among the state Republicans on hand at the rally.

Mack, who is running against Sen. Bill Nelson, said Romney needed another Florida Republican in the U.S. Senate to allow him to accomplish his agenda.

Atwater blasted Obama, saying the president has ruined everything he has touched. “I’m convinced that if you put Barack Obama in the Sahara Desert for one year, that there would be a sand shortage,” Atwater said.
