Mitt Romney to speak in West Allis Friday, Craig Romney in WI Thursday
WEST ALLIS (CNN) -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will deliver what his campaign is describing as his "closing argument" Friday, November 2nd in West Allis. The Republican candidate is scheduled to articulate that final case to voters at a campaign stop at State Fair Park's Expo Center, before heading back to the battleground state of Ohio for two campaign stops ahead of Election Day on Tuesday.
The event will mark Romney's first stop in Wisconsin since the day after he announced Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate in August.
A senior Romney adviser said the GOP contender will be "framing the big choice between change and the status quo." The choice for voters is either "a new course or another four years like the last four," the adviser said.
Campaign officials had signaled Romney was going to offer up his closing argument earlier this week, but that plan was interrupted by the arrival of Superstorm Sandy.
On Thursday, Romney's son, Craig Romney campaigned on his father's behalf in Madison and Wauwatosa.
Craig Romney met with supporters at the Fitchburg Victory Office in an event sponsored by the UW-Madison College Republicans.
Later, Craig Romney met with supporters at the Wauwatosa Victory Office on North Mayfair Road in an event sponsored by the Marquette College Republicans.
Craig Romney's focus was on grabbing the youth vote -- a vote that could follow 2008 trends and highly favor Obama.
With less than a week to go, the clock is winding down, and as a battleground state, Wisconsin is expected to host a candidate blitz in the days leading up to November 6th.
