CAMPAIGN STOP: Romney Calls On Iowa Voters
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is back in Iowa Friday, just two days after his last visit.
Gov. Romney spoke at Kinzler Construction Services in Ames just after noon, calling on Iowans to cast their ballots for him.
Romney began his stump speech by criticizing President Obama for falling short on the campaign promises he made before he was elected and failing to bring both parties together to pass important legislation.
Romney talked about making big changes that would strengthen the American economy by creating 12 million jobs in the first four years of his administration. He explained his plan to restore America, which includes gaining North American energy independence by 2020.
Romney also talked about reforming healthcare and saving Medicare and Social Security.
He asked Iowans to get involved and get their neighbors to vote, or volunteer at a polling place. He played up the importance of the state in the election.
“Iowa may be the place that decides who the next president is. It may decide whether or not we’re going to have real change,” Romney told the crowd.
Romney is also planning to make another Iowa stop in the Quad Cities on Monday.
