Gov. Mitt Romney told the crowd of about 3,000 people that residents of the east coast where the storm will be most intense are counting on Ohio to help them with donations to relief organizations.  And, he says the nation is counting on Ohio to put him over the top in November’s election. No Republican president has won the White House without winning Ohio.  And, Romney again criticized President Obama for not doing enough to boost the nation’s economy. If elected, Romney says one of the first things he would do is cut the corporate tax rate to attract foreign investment.

“They see that we in this country pay more in business taxes than any other major country in the world. In Europe, where the corporate tax used to be higher than ours is now 25 percent. Ours is 35 percent. So businesses interested in investing take their business elsewhere. Canada has lowered it’s tax to 15 percent, so businesses go there to save money.  If elected I’ll lower our rate to 25 percent.”  

Meanwhile, the Obama campaign chided Romney for an ad running in Ohio that claims jobs at the state’s Jeep plant will move to China. That ad, they say, has been debunked. After the rally, Bob Crumling of Avon Lake said he’s a swing voter who’s supporting Romney, and he’s glad there will be a momentary lull in campaignin

“Like with any campaign you here so much back and forth that you’ll be glad when election day comes. The ads on television become very redundant, there’s nothing new being said.”

This was Romney’s 8th visit to Ohio in 5 days, but both he and Mr. Obama are expected to return before November 6th.
