Milwaukee, Wisc.- Friday morning Governor Mitt Romney held a rally at the county fairgrounds. Despite the frosty temperatures, over 1500 people who could not get in attended the “overflow rally” outside the event.
The energy was enthusiastic and upbeat for Romney supporters. Female voters spoke to me about the most important issues to them this coming Tuesday. The overwhelming response was jobs, the economy, and a better future for their children and grandchildren.
Many expressed tremendous concern for their kids, who are already struggling to find jobs, even with a college degree. They also flatly rejected that there is a “war on women” which President Obama’s campaign claims is being waged by the Republican Party, Mitt Romney, and Paul Ryan.
Attendees also felt strongly that the momentum is on the side of Mitt Romney. Most pointed to the recently failed recall effort of republican Governor Scott Walker’s landslide victory as the biggest reason to be optimistic about Tuesday’s election. Others pointed out, if that wasn’t the case, President Obama would not be coming back to the state on Saturday and Monday, the last day before Election Day.
After the rally was over inside the park pavilion, Governor Walker and Governor Romney both came out to greet the cold but energetic crowd.
