Mitt Romney to Join 'Reclaiming America' Bus Tour
Mitt Romney will appear at the Tea Party Express “Reclaiming America” bus tour stop in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Labor Day, reports CNN
The appearance marks the first time that Romney has headlined a tea party event.
A Romney campaign spokesman didn’t deny that this is his first major tea party appearance, but said the candidate has consulted with plenty of tea partyers and supports their goals of limited government, spending reductions, and tax cuts.
“The more access [tea party activists] have to these candidates to make an informed decision, the better chance that candidate has to win their support,” Tea Party Express national spokesman Levi Russell said.
Tea Party Express officials said all the other Republican presidential candidates were invited to join the bus tour too. The 30-stop trip began last week in California and is slated to finish in Tampa Sept. 12.
