Mitt Romney Campaigns and Fundraises in Wyoming (VIDEO 08-18-11)

Mitt Romney made a stop in Afton, Wyoming today for a town hall meeting. A standing room only crowd welcomed the candidate to Star Valley where he fielded a variety of questions.
A standing room only crowd welcomed the presidential candidate Thursday afternoon in Afton, Wyoming. Mitt Romney fielded questions from the audience in a town hall like setting. The questions ranged from shrinking the size of government to our country’s dependency on foreign oil.

A one hundred year old lifelong resident of the Afton area asked the candidate if he elected, would he restore our freedom to where it was when he was born, which was before Lincoln County was even in existence. Romney answered by saying that he would work hard to change the culture in Washington.


“We’ve got a lot of people across this country that are hurting,” said Mitt Romney. “That’s true in rural America as well as urban America. I want to make sure that we get economic policies in place that put Americans back to work. By the way, Wyoming is pretty important in the nomination process. Wyoming would be one of the states on Super Tuesday that will decide who our nominee is and I would like to win Wyoming and a few other states as well.”

The full story is HERE.

In addition to the Town Hall Meeting, Romney attended two fundraisers:
Earlier this morning, Romney will attend a private $2,500-per-head fundraiser with a number of prominent local businessmen at the Star Valley Trout Ranch near Afton, according to Afton Civic Center events coordinator Justin Visser.

After the Afton meet and greet, Romney will attend a fundraiser in Wilson, Williams said. Williams declined to provide details about that event.

It's called respecting and protecting your base.

I love it. Going to places others can't afford to go AND making a great impression.

I'm pretty sure there are some Americans in Wyoming.

Now visit Kentucky, please.

Not to mention there is money to be raised, and Wyoming is a Super Tuesday state.

There may be money here too, but Kentucky's primary is so late that usually our results to affect the outcome. So I guess I won't expect a visit anytime soon. :(

I just drove through Afton a week or so ago. It's a beautiful place, with pretty decent folks. Romney is getting out to the rural corners, and getting the votes he needs to win this.

He'll be in Logan today. There's a University there (Utah State), as well as the Fat Boy outlet. Logan is not a huge place, but full of voters who normally would not see a candidate.

He's doing the right thing at the right time.

At $2500 PP fundraisers, money has found it's way to that area as well and I'm glad Romney is getting some of it.

I think even Mitt's detractors will have a hard time arguing that when Mitt Romney says, "I will work hard to... [do something]," he won't work hard. One of the great Mitt trademarks is hard work. People often say he is like the "Energizer Bunny"--he just keeps going and going. Mitt's wife, Ann says that George Romney, Mitt's dad was like that, too. George lived until he was 88 years old, by the way.
