Update: Romney Cancels Plans For Wednesday Rally in Oldsmar

Local supporters are spreading the word.

Update 7:45 p.m. Sept. 9:

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has canceled plans to attend a Sept. 12 rally in the Tampa Bay area.

According to Art Wood, chairman of the Hillsborough County Republican Party, "the Mitt Romney campaign has canceled their Wednesday evening rally in Oldsmar."

Wood said in an email that the rally would be rescheduled but that no firm date has yet been offered.

The chairman had sent an earlier email alerting supporters to "block off the time" to show their support for the former Massachusetts governor's presidential bid.


Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney plans to make a stop in the Tampa Bay area Wednesday night to rally supporters to his side.

The former Massachusetts governor is expected to host a public event somewhere in the Oldsmar area Sept. 12 and officials from the Hillsborough County Republican Club are working to get the word out.

“I've gotten the word that Gov. Romney will be staging a public rally at 8 p.m. in Oldsmar on this Wednesday evening,” wrote Art Wood, chairman of the Hillsborough County Republican Club, in an email.

While more details aren’t available at this time, including the location for the visit, Wood is working to get supporters to pencil in the time on their calendars.

“Please block off the time so that we can show the world how much support there is for Gov. Romney in Hillsborough County,” he wrote.

I would not walk across the street to see him.
Andrea Jones September 09, 2012 at 07:28 PM
Neither would I, but is it certain? Oldsmar web site has nothing on it. You would think it'd be a big banner across the page??? Not even a mention...

The information available came from the Hillsborough County Republican Club. We'll let you know as soon as we hear more about the details.

Um - Governor Romney, if you are looking to speak to white Senior citizens who tend to be Republican, they are in Sun City, not "Oldsmar,"
Jamie Robe September 09, 2012 at 10:04 PM
I am firm President Obama supporter, BUT gosh, I feel kinda sorry for Romney... he must be getting some screwy campaign advice...Oldsmar????
Andrea Jones September 09, 2012 at 10:13 PM
I don't feel bad for Romney, I'd like to, but I can't. It is amazing to me, however, how he (and other republicans like him) have been able to convince the very people he intends to put at great disadvantage through the loss of services like Medicare (that they paid all their lives to support) to vote for him anyway against their own interests?

Cant say That ANYTHING Romney or Paul Ryan Could possibly say or do right now would eradicate the facts behind their platform.....

I'd like to go. Someone has to be the voice of reason in a sea of insanity.

Good comment ANDREA. The repubs must have hypnotized their average member. THEY sure are NOT aware of REALITY
John Hudgins September 10, 2012 at 10:10 AM
Any time a presidential candidate like Mitt decides to come to town, even Oldsmar, we should be excited! This country needs someone like Mitt to run it! Obamanation is ruining this country all because he doesn't want to admit that yes he was delt a rough hand, but what he has done the last 4 years has made it worse.
Rich Guagliardo September 10, 2012 at 12:46 PM
Yeah, John, we need someone who has flip-flopped no less than twice in the last 24 hours about how he would repeal Obama-care. WAKE UP!
Claudia LeFevre-Lowry September 10, 2012 at 03:07 PM
Actually there are thousands of us white senior citizens that don't live in Sun City. Perhaps you and others should take your race bating elsewhere.
Ray Kazmir September 12, 2012 at 10:41 AM
Oh and the USA hasn't had a budget in how many yrs? That's right.. About 4!!! Obama is destroying this country and people do not see it. Close to spending $6 trillion in less than 4 yrs and we are not fixed yet??? He is delaying just about everything and not doing anything about!!!
bayou belle September 13, 2012 at 03:20 PM

Obummers foreign policies is in the toilet and this Obama care is what's honna hurt.., how bout trying to get an appointment to see your doctor, instead of a few weeks it could take a month or more... More people less doctors is what's about to happen!! Why do you think people that live in Sicialised medacine country's come to the USA to be treated??? Because We HAD the best health care in the world!!!!
K Kennedy September 15, 2012 at 07:51 PM
Maybe Romney will offer you universal grammar lessons.

The people of the state of Ohio need to know that the republicans are a BIG part of the prescription drug abuse problem we have . Florida is one of the worst states for prescription drug abuse . The republicans in Florida fought for over 7 years against the database . First they claimed privacy issues and when that did not fly, they went on to budget issues . Under severe pressure they passed a watered down version of a database . The doctors are not required to report the controlled substance scripts they write . The drug dealers love this . They can go to 10 doctors a day and get as many scripts as they want . They pay cash and there is no paper trail . This country needs a national prescription drug database , not just state by by state . Just like we have a national drivers license database . In Florida the republicans would only pass the watered down database if the tax payers did not have to pay for it . They figure the cost to be 1 million a year to keep the database on line , so do the math . I dont believe anyone other than the republicans would disagree to pay for it. The money was never the issue anyway . The issue is that the republicans protect the profits the drug companies and doctors make . For this one reason alone I would never vote for a republican . Please vote for Obama in 2012 .

we never had the best healthcare in the world and Canadian did come down as the Canadian system is the worst in universal covered 1st world counties but they cover every one(we only cover about half) for hundreds of trillion of dollar less in fact the best heath care in France and if we could mirror it here it would cover everyone from cradle to grave and cost several trillion less a year
