Romney to deliver 'closing argument' in Wisconsin

Virginia Beach, Virginia (CNN) – Mitt Romney will deliver what his campaign is describing as his "closing argument" Friday, a top aide to the GOP nominee confirmed to CNN.

The Republican candidate is scheduled to articulate that final case to voters at a campaign stop in West Allis, Wisconsin before heading back to the battleground state of Ohio for two campaign stops.

The event will mark Romney's first stop in Wisconsin since the day after he announced Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate in August.

A senior Romney adviser said the GOP contender will be "framing the big choice between change and the status quo."

The choice for voters is either "a new course or another four years like the last four," the adviser said.

Campaign officials had signaled Romney was going to offer up his closing argument earlier this week. But that plan was interrupted by the arrival of Superstorm Sandy.

  1. Chris Christie in 2016!

    Governor Chris Christie would have been a better pick this year. He has heart like Obama and is a straight shooter.

    This is an easy election choice. If you love American, you will vote for Romney. If you hate America, you will vote for Obama. It's that simple.

    Romney's closing argument: "I'm not who I said I was. I'm exactly what you want me to be. I promise!"

    US officials: No delays in rescue effort in Libya
    The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to provideintelligence information publicly.
    The consulate attack has become a political issue in Washington, with Republicans questioning the security at the consulate, the intelligence on militant groups in North Africa and the Obama administration's response in the days after the attack. Republicans also have questioned whether enough military and other support was requested and received. And presidential candidate Mitt Romney has used the attack as a sign of what he says is President Barack Obama's weak leadership oversea

    The truth hurts but the truth always prevails.

    Mitt Romney / Darrell Issa / Two of a kind

    Romney's plans are hardly new. We had those policies in play before. It led to unequal prosperity, little going to the middle class. Romney is a man of change in the sense that he has changed his position frequently and says what he says to particular crowds simply to get elected.

    A week from the presidential election Matt Romney, the second-oldest son of Mitt Romney, travel to met with Russians whom he hoped to convince to invest in his company. Newyork Times article today. Too much for Mitt promise to be though on Putin Russia. His son is already exploiting his father popularity for business. Romney presidency will be a business boom for Romney family not for ordinary people and the 47%ers.

    Romney = W

    Bush (W) is in the Caymen's giving a lecture on how to "offshore" to "beat paying taxes" - quite the patriot, isn't he? NOT

    We cannot maintain this country without revenue to pay for infrastructure. Attaching personhood, or abortion, bills to everything is blackmail. STOP it BAGGERS.

    Christie threw Mitt the twit under the bus. They are already blaming Christie for Mitt the twit's loss.
