Mitt Romney will make a return visit to the critical Tampa area this weekend, hosting a victory rally at Land O’ Lakes High School, reports

Land O’ Lakes is familiar territory for Romney – he campaigned here two years ago on behalf of then-Senate nominee Marco Rubio. Now Rubio is returning the favor, co-hosting the victory rally in Republican-heavy Pasco County, which is home to incoming House Speaker Will Weatherford, a former football star at Land O’ Lakes High School.

“We’ve been talking about them coming to Pasco for a long time,” Weatherford said. “And Land O’ Lakes?  What could be better?  Of course, I’m partial to my alma mater.  I’m especially partial to the football field, having spent a whole lot of hours on it.”

Saturday’s event starts at 7 p.m.
