Romney stops in Chester Township

(Below is a quick recap of what happened during Mitt Romney's visit in Delco today.

... Be sure to read tomorrow's edition of the Daily Times for more details.)

During a campaign stop in Delaware County Monday, Republican Mitt Romney laid out reasons why he believes be would do a better job than President Barack Obama.
          The former Massachusetts governor said Obama has been “anti-job, anti-investment and anti-growth,” during his term as president.
            Romney was joined by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Pa., during a stop at Mustang Expediting, an expedited trucking business based in Chester Township.
            Though Romney faces Texas Congressman Ron Paul and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich in the primary election tomorrow, he focused all his energy on Obama.
            Romney pledged to repeal Obama’s federal health care law and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
            Romney criticized the president, saying the nation’s unemployment rate has hovered near 8 percent during his time in office.
            “I think young voters of this country have to vote for me,” Romney said, arguing that there has been an increase in the percentage of college graduates who can’t find work during Obama’s presidency.
Several other elected officials from the area, including U.S. Rep. Pat Meehan, R-7, of Upper Darby, were at the event to show support for Romney.
“We know Barack Obama inherited a bad economy,” said Meehan. “But through his leadership and failed policies he has made it much, much worse.”
This was not the first time that Romney stopped in Delaware County. He made his first campaign stop in the county – and Pennsylvania – earlier this month at the Iron Shop in Marple.
