Romney works to woo independent voters in NH
NEWINGTON, N.H. (WHDH) -- Gov. Romney made an appearance in New Hampshire Saturday, hoping to rally more voters in the granite state only days before the election.
Saturday’s rally was the first of two visits over three days.
“We are almost there and the door, the door to opportunity is open and we’re going to walk through it,” said Romney.
Romney made a direct appeal to independent voters who will likely decide the race and touted his experience as governor of a liberal state.
“I learned as governor in Massachusetts that the best achievements and accomplishments are shared achievements,” said Romney.
He blasted the president's record, calling him too divisive.
“He said he would be most partisan president. But he’s been the most partisan,” said Romney.
The early morning crowd here seemed more decided than undecided, eager to hear Romney’s message.
“The country is going in the wrong direction. Government is the problem, not the solution,” said Romney supporter, Phil Cressey, Jr.
“We need a change. We’ve got to have him,” said Kengall Eaton.
Taking off for Iowa and Colorado, Romney’s campaign said they have high hopes for a granite state win come Tuesday.
“The people of New Hampshire, you’ve been around a while, you’ve been around politicians, you’ve got clear eyes. You know how to judge what’s what. I’m counting on your clear eyes and full hearts to make sure we can’t lose on Tuesday. Thanks so very much,” said an enthused Romney.
It all comes full circle for Mitt Romney on Monday evening when he will appear in Manchester for a rally on election eve in the same state where he first launched his bid for president.
