Mitt Romney continued his two-day campaign swing through Texas on Wednesday, while Ann Romney campaigned in Florida. The former Governor first held a tele-town hall with members of the National Federation of Independent Business, a group of small business owners, about tax cuts as well as Obama Administration regulations that he would put on hold.
Romney also attended a fundraiser in San Antonio with billionaire Red McCombs and Clear Channel Communications founder Lowry Mays. He later spoke to employees of USAA before traveling to Houston for more fundraisers. He was expected to raise close to $15 million dollars while in the state.
His wife Ann continued her outreach to Florida voters and saddled up at Marion Therapeutic Riding Association on Wednesday. Mrs. Romney talked to supporters and toured the Ocala facility which pairs horses with riders of all ages challenged by physical, mental or emotional disabilities.
She addressed the crowd aboard Duke, a therapy horse, and talked about how horses had helped her during times when her MS symptoms were so severe she couldn't get out of bed, but "the excitement of getting on a horse " helped her.
Mrs. Romney will wrap up her three-day trip to the Sunshine State Thursday with a visit to the Woodlands Center for Specialized Medicine in Pensacola, Florida. Mitt Romney will travel to St Louis for a campaign stop at Production Products Company.
Tuesday, she was in Miami at the Islas Canarias Restaurant, which specializes in Cuban cuisine, where she addressed Hispanic and Cuban supporters.
