Romney promises real change in Milwaukee

In a last ditch effort to win the support of Wisconsin voters before Tuesday’s election, Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney rallied thousands of supporters at the state fair grounds in Milwaukee Friday.

The crowd chanted “four more years” during Romney’s speech, which began with the former Massachusetts Governor attacking Obama for stagnant economic growth and then touting his own record as a leader and reformer.

“Do you want more of the same or do you want real change,” Romney said. “He promised change, but I have a record of achieving it.”

Romney’s appearance was preceded by a slew of prominent Wisconsin political figures, including Senate candidate Tommy Thompson, Gov. Scott Walker and legendary Green Bay Packers quarterback Bart Starr.

Polls show Obama with a lead in the state, but it is small and Republicans, who along with Democrats have been campaigning heavy in state in the weeks leading up to the election, hope they can get Wisconsin’s crucial 10 electoral votes.  Experts say the election will come down to a few key battle ground states, Wisconsin among them. Currently, most polls suggest Obama leads in Wisconsin, Ohio and other tossup states.
