Romney Tells Tampa America Needs 'Real Reform'
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is addressing a crowd at Landmark Aviation in Tampa this morning.
For the second time in less than a week, Gov. Mitt Romney is on stage in the Tampa Bay area.
Romney began addressing a crowd at Tampa’s Landmark Aviation a short while ago.
"My view is straight forward," he told the Tampa crowd. "I believe this is the time for America to take a different course; a turning point for our country. With 23 million Americans struggling to find a good job, this is something that requires a different path than we've been on.
"I will bring real change. Real reform."
During Saturday’s visit in Land O’ Lakes, Romney told a crowd of an estimated 15,000 that America was ready for a change.
“This is happening all over the country," Romney said to the crowd in Land O’ Lakes. “People are coming together that want change. We're going to give it to them.
"When we win Florida, we're going to win the White House."
President Barack Obama has also made it a priority to visit the Tampa Bay area on the campaign trail. Florida is a critical swing state in the race for the White House, making Tampa a vital region to win.
"I've come to Florida today to ask you for your vote," Obama said during his Oct. 25 rally in Ybor City. "I've come to ask you to help me keep moving America forward."
