Mitt Romney returned to Stratham, New Hamsphire, the town where he first announced his campaign for president. The presumptive-GOP candidate launched a five-day "Believe in America: Every Town Counts" tour with a stop at the Scamman Farm in Stratham.
Later in the day, he held an ice cream social in Milford. Following that event, Romney talked to reporters about the President's immigration policy change announcement.
The bus tour, which takes Romney to small towns in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa and Michigan, focuses on average Americans who have lost jobs, faced foreclosure or were affected in other ways by the current economic downturn. Romney will tell his supporters that President Obama "has left American families to bear the burden of his failed policies."
"In America's towns, you don't find despair -- you find boundless optimism," the former governor of Massachusetts argues in a campaign release announcing the tour.
The "Every Town Count" tour will bring Romney to:
- Pennsylvania, Saturday, June 16
- Ohio, Sunday, June 17
- Wisconsin & Iowa, Monday, June 18
- Michigan, Tuesday, June 19
