Will Mitt Romney visit Sandusky?
Thus far, we haven't heard anything about Mitt Romney planning to visit Sandusky. Like we do every presidential election year, we reached out to both candidates (and by reached out, I mean we pestered the bejeezus out of their campaign staffs) inviting them to visit Sandusky starting in January. In 2008, John McCain visited the Washington Park gazebo before the election and this year we had President Barack Obama stop by the same stumping location in July. Each time we were given only a few days notice to get ready. So, even though we haven't heard about a Romney visit, it's still possible in the next five or so weeks before the election he will announce a campaign stop. Ohio is an important battleground state and both candidates seem to be covering a lot of ground. If you're passionate about seeing Romney campaign in Sandusky, don't underestimate the power of persistence. Call or email the local Republican party folks and the national campaign and tell them you'd like to see the candidate visit your hometown.
