Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney held a campaign event at a family farm in Iowa Tuesday afternoon.
Governor Romney was introduced by Sen. Charles Grassley on the Koch Family Farm near Van Meter.
Romney spoke for about 15 minutes to the gathered crowd. He talked about the importance of agriculture to the nation and his plans to help save the family farm. That included capping agriculture regulations and making sure any regulations have to be passed by the full Congress before being put into effect.
Romney also talked about ending the Death Tax, something he says President Obama plans to raise significantly.
“You paid for that farm once, you shouldn’t have to pay for it again,” says Romney.
Romney told the crowd he’d make passing the Farm Bill a priority if he’s elected, unlike President Obama.
Romney is headed to battleground state Ohio next.
