MOON TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Mitt Romney made a few last-minute Election Day campaign stops, including a brief stop here in Pittsburgh.
Call it a political hit and run; a candidate making a quick stop to encourage a last-minute vote.
Several hundred supporters showed up Tuesday afternoon to greet their candidate, Gov. Mitt Romney, who touched down in Pittsburgh for less than an hour.
The Republican Presidential candidate walked briskly across the tarmac at Atlantic Aviation, which is adjacent to Pittsburgh International Airport, to wave to several hundred supporters.
No speeches, no handshaking, but lots of enthusiasm.
“He’s making that last-minute push for Pennsylvania and I think it’s a good idea,” said one Romney supporter. “I know people around here are pretty upset with the current regime; so I think it will be a good thing and a possibility.”
“My future, my country’s future is important to me,” added another Romney supporter. “I’m a Catholic and I know that Mitt Romney shares the beliefs that I believe in, and I’m looking forward to it. I’m ready. If he wins Pennsylvania, he wins this whole thing.”
While in Pittsburgh, Romney made a quick stop in Green Tree where he visited his local campaign headquarters to offer his thanks to the people there.
