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.”

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.
