Romney to attend rally at Pier in St. Petersburg
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will attempt to build on the momentum from Wednesday night's debate when he appears at a campaign rally tonight in St. Petersburg. Polls reflect that Romney was a solid winner in the first debate with President Barack Obama. The performance renewed energy for his campaign with about a month before Election Day. Tonight's rally is at the Pier in St. Petersburg. The program starts at 6:15 p.m. Tickets are free but attendees must have tickets.The Pier is at 550 Second Ave. N.E. on the downtown waterfront. Romney was in the Tampa area last month when he attended a fundraiser at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Sarasota. Last month, Romney's running mate, Paul Ryan, stopped in Oldsmar to tell a crowd that he and Romney would reverse four years of "debt, doubt and decline" by improving the economy, preserving Medicare and strengthening the nation's defense.
