PA: Romney tells voters he’ll boost national economy


Romney: 'Our economy runs on freedom'

By Melissa Daniels | PA Independent

CORNWALL — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told Pennsylvania voters Saturday that if elected president he would bring economic freedom back to the United States.

Romney spoke to a crowd of hundreds at the 18th-century iron-making site Cornwall Iron Furnace in Lebanon County, the last of three stops in Pennsylvania he made during part of the “Every Town Counts” campaign trail.

 
Much of his speech focused on how, if elected, Romney would boost America’s economy, something he said incumbent President Barack Obama has failed to accomplish.
 
“I’m going to take advantage of our extraordinary energy resources,” Romney said to cheers. “We got natural gas, coal, oil and that pipeline from Canada.”
 
Also in attendance was Gov. Tom Corbett, Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley, Congressman Jim Gerlach, R-Berks, Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., and Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota.
