Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Monday announced a five-day bus tour through six battleground states, beginning with New Hampshire on Friday. The likely Republican nominee will meet with families and business owners in small towns in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa and Michigan, where he will focus on what he calls President Obama’s failed economic policies.
“For three and a half years, President Obama has paid little attention to the everyday concerns of the American people,” Romney said in a statement announcing his “Every Town Counts” tour. “President Obama has offered no hope for the future, and he has left American families to bear the burden of his failed policies.”
It will be Romney’s first multi-state campaign swing since he became the presumptive nominee in late April. It will also put renewed emphasis on Wisconsin, where Republican Gov. Scott Walker survived a recall election last week, prompting several prominent Republicans, including Walker, to say they believe Romney has a shot at winning the state in the fall.
