JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- With less than a week to go before the election, Mitt Romney spent Wednesday vying for votes in Northeast Florida.
Mitt Romney wrapped up a day of campaigning right here in Jacksonville. He laid out his vision for the future. "My plan creates 12 million jobs, and adds more take home pay which is badly needed. You know what its been like," said Romney.
Romney drew hundreds of supporters, carrying flags and signs. The crowd was mixed from veterans to young trick or treaters. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush introduced Romney, but not before poking fun at President Obama's re-election campaign. "President Obama was dealt a tough hand. We hear that everyday and it was my brothers fault," said Jeb Bush.
But probably what drew the most cheers was Romney saying he'll get people back to work. "Food prices are up electricity is up. These are tough times for the people of America," said Romney.
Tough times many people right here in the River City are feeling. No matter who is elected president next week, both sides seem to have the same goal. "I've got to be able to reach across the aisle and get good democrats and republicans to work together," said Romney.
Romney heads to Virginia to campaign next.
