Romney’s coming to RI on Wednesday
GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is slated to visit Rhode Island for a town hall meeting on small business at the Crowne Plaza in Warwick at 6:30 pm Wednesday. He’s due in Hartford earlier that day.
RI GOP chairman Mark Zaccaria says Romney’s visit is meant to raise the candidate’s visibility for Republicans before RI’s April 24 primary.
Former governor Don Carcieri has been a staunch Romney supporter, and the state’s GOP establishment, such as it is, has lined up behind the party’s frontrunner.
Rhode Island hasn’t backed a GOP presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan got the nod in 1984.
