Team Romney is marching through Wisconsin today and hammering away on presumptive Democrat nominee Barack Obama.
Mitt Romney’s bus tour rolled through Wisconsin on Monday, drawing a star-studded list of top Republican politicians to the latest stop on his swing through six battleground states.
The first stop of the day was Janesville, Wis., the home to House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), who has been rumored to be under consideration as a potential vice presidential pick for the GOP nominee. Ryan was there, as was RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, also a Wisconsinite, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), and Gov. Scott Walker (R), fresh off defeating his recall election earlier this month.
The collection of talent assembled had the Republican nominee optimistic about retaking the Badger State for the first time since 1984.
You got to say Wisconsin sure is producing a lot of fresh blood for the GOP and the influence of Walker, Ryan, Johnson and Priebus sure can help put the state into the GOP column.
Priebus, providing the most fiery of the multiple introductions, also hammered President Barack Obama.
“Unfortunately we’ve got someone in the white house who is more in love with the man in the mirror and the sound of his own voice than following through on his promises,” the RNC chairman said.
Romney carried that theme through his address, joking the president’s “hope and change” slogan from 2008 was now, “We hope to change the subject.”
“We’ve got to get America working again, the world depends on us,” Romney said.
The world is waiting. And not for a second Obama term.
