Romney Bus Tour: “Every Town Counts” Complete Schedule

A lot of excitement has surrounded the Romney campaign following the announced Battleground state bus tour. Specific dates and details were hard to come by but I have pieced much of it together. I expect to update this post as details emerge.

June 15, New Hampshire (2 stops)

  • Stratham, 10:30am: is the first stop on the tour during which Romney will meet with America’s families and business owners in small towns.  Romney is scheduled to appear at the Scammans’ Bittersweet Farm at 10:30 a.m. Friday, June 15. Doors open at 9:30am. To RSVP and to get tickets to Friday’s event in Stratham, visit www.mittromney.com/states/new-hampshire, call 835-4073 or e-mail TeamNH@mittromney.com.
  • Milford, 2pm: Mitt Romney and his wife Ann arrive on the Oval here on Friday, they will be joined by state Sen. Peter Bragdon, a Romney supporter. Romney will be on the Oval here on Friday for what is being billed as an invitation-only ice cream social. Getting an invitation, however, seems easy. According to Milford Police Chief Fred Douglas, the Romney group is slated to arrive on the Oval sometime between 1:30 and 2 p.m. The email invitation sent out by the Romney campaign indicated that “doors” will open to the Oval park area at 1 p.m. and that the social would start at 2.

June 16, Pennsylvania (3 stops)

  • Weatherly, 8:45am: Doors open at 7:45am. RSVP  here. Romney is expected to visit  Weatherly Casting & Machine Co. at 300 Commerce St in the Carbon County borough Saturday.
  • Quakertown, 12:40pm:  Romney will head to Bucks County holding a brief rally at the Wawa gas station, 1960 John Fries Highway in Milford Township on Route 663 near the Quakertown interchange of the Pennsylvania Turnpike’s Northeast Extension. Sen. Pat Toomey is expected to join the Pennsylvania leg of the bus tour in Quakertown and continue with Romney onto Saturday evening’s rally at Cornwall Iron Furnace.
  • Cornwall, 4:45pm: Romney is rallying at Cornwall Furnace, a Lebanon County charcoal fueled ironmaking complex. Doors open at 3:45pm. Sign up to attend here.

Romney Bus Tour: New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin

Wisconsin … Boom! (Check out the complete schedule here.)

Mitt Romney announced the “Every Town Counts” bus tour to begin this Friday.  Exact dates for campaign stops now available:  June 15, Stratham New Hampshire; June 16, Pennsylvania; June 17, Ohio; June 18, Iowa; June 18, Wisconsin; June 19, Michigan. Nice to see Pennsylvania and Wisconsin on the list:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney plans to stop in Wisconsin next week as part of a five-day bus tour. Romney’s campaign announced the bus tour and the Wisconsin stop on June 18 but did not release the exact location or other details. Romney is scheduled to be in Iowa on the same day. The bus tour is billed as a chance for Romney to meet with families and business owners in small towns across six states. The tour begins Friday in New Hampshire with other stops planned in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan. The Wisconsin visit will mark the first time Romney has been in the state since winning the primary in April. It comes less than two weeks after Republican Gov. Scott Walker won a recall election.

Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania? — playing on your opponent’s turf is a sure sign of strength.  Nice to see Romney flex his muscles.

Obama won all six states in 2008, but Republicans think Romney has a shot at taking them back this year. Romney’s aides hope the bus tour, which will include a mix of outdoor retail campaign stops – as well as a new, rebranded campaign bus – will provide a jolt to his efforts in a slew of Midwestern states, including critical Ohio.

Update: More on Ohio:

Romney is slated to appear at the [Newark] Town Square in front of the county courthouse Sunday afternoon. An exact time has not been set for the public event. The Licking County rally is sandwiched between a 9 a.m. Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast at Mapleside Farms in Brunswick, Ohio, and an evening gathering at K’s Hamburger Shop in Troy.  The three Ohio stops follow a private fund-raiser Wednesday evening in Cincinnati for the former Massachusetts governor.  And the pair of Romney visits to Ohio bracket a campaign stop planned by President Barack Obama to Cuyahoga Community College Recreation Center in Cleveland on Thursday.
