Romney anuncia una gira por pequeñas ciudades de seis estados



Desde que ató la nominación republicana, el Gobernador Mitt Romney ha hecho actos públicos muy espaciados y ha dedicado la mayor parte del tiempo a la recaudación de fondos. Hoy nos llega desde su campaña una primera señal de que, con el comienzo del verano, piensa ir intensificando su agenda: el próximo viernes iniciará un recorrido por carretera que le llevará a seis estados en cinco días.

Es la primera gira electoral propiamente dicha de la elección general, y estará llena de simbolismos, ya que partirá desde Stratham, en New Hampshire, justo el lugar en el que anunció su candidatura hace ahora un año, y concluirá en su estado natal, Michigan.

Mitt Romney is this week launching a five-day bus tour that will put him on the ground in battleground states like Michigan, Iowa and Pennsylvania.
The “Every Town Counts” bus tour — which will kick off Friday in New Hampshire — will put Romney in six states over the course of five days.
Romney is set to campaign in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa and Michigan with a focus on small towns. All of those states are key to the November election.
(...) While the campaign has provided few details about specific cities, some stops have been reported by local media outlets.
Romney will kick off the bus tour Friday in Stratham, N.H., where he announced his presidential bid one year ago, according to the The Foster’s Daily Democrat. He will also stop in Davenport, Iowa, next Monday, the Des Moines Register reported. It will be Romney’s third visit to Iowa since the caucuses. The Detroit News reported that Romney will spend the night in Michigan at the conclusion of the bus tour, and then attend fundraisers on June 20 in Grand Rapids and Troy.
