Romney and Ryan plan major kick-off rally Friday in Ohio - join Buckeye Firearms Assoc. leaders in Cincinnati!
Buckeye Firearms Assoc. leaders will be on hand in Cincinnati when Mitt Romney returns to battleground Ohio on Friday night, and it won't be for just any other rally.
According to The Washington Post, nearly 100 governors, senators, congressmen, mayors, Olympic gold medalists and other Republican luminaries are scheduled to join Romney and his vice presidential running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.), in a Cincinnati suburb for a huge rally designed to launch the campaign on its final, frenetic three days of barnstorming before Election Day.
Dubbed the "Romney-Ryan Real Recovery Road Rally," the event will be held in West Chester, just outside of Cincinnati.
The campaign announced that almost every Romney campaign surrogate – from the candidate's wife, Ann, and their five sons to a number of Olympic athletes to a lengthy roster of pro-Second Amendment elected officials – will attend, underscoring the importance of Ohio's 18 electoral votes to the ultimate goal of defeating Barack Obama.
From West Chester, The Post says Romney's supporters will fan out across the nation to campaign over the weekend in 11 key states: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
The rally will be held at 7:30 p.m. at The Square at Union Centre, a large outdoor gathering space in downtown West Chester, which is the hometown of House Speaker John A. Boehner (R). Doors open at 4:30pm.
In addition to Mitt and Ann Romney and Paul and Janna Ryan, the Romney campaign has announced that among the attending supporters will be pro-Second Amendment voices like former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal; Texas Gov. Rick Perry; Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback; Sens. Rob Portman (Ohio), Marco Rubio (Fla.), John Thune (S.D.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Kelly Ayotte (N.H.); and former senator Norm Coleman (Minn.); and Rep. Jason Chaffetz (Utah). Other attendees include Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus; Olympic champion speed skater Derek Parra; Olympic champion figure skater Scott Hamilton; champion golfer Jack Nicklaus; as well as Tagg and Jen Romney, Matt and Laurie Romney, Josh Romney, Ben Romney and Craig and Mary Romney.
