With former Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio behind him, Republican Mitt Romney revved up his Atlantic storm-stalled campaign in Florida today.
“This is quite a time for the country, as you know — we’re going through trauma in a major part of the country,” said Romney, asking his audience to lend support for victims of Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast after a day and a half of suspended campaigning because of the storm. “It’s interesting to see how people come together at a time like this.”
Wasting little time on re-entry into the campaign atmosphere:
“People coming together is also… what’s going to happen on November the 7th,” Romney said. The vote on Nov. 6 will weigh two different views of the nation, said Romney, promising “real change and real reform in a presidency that brings us together.”
“I don’t just talk abut change. I have a plan to actually execute change and make it happen,” said Romney, talking about his five-point plan for economic recovery, starting with expanded production of oil and gas and including increased foreign trade — particularly in Latin America.
