Update: Romney Will Visit Land O' Lakes
Land O’ Lakes High School is the venue for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's rally.
Update 5:45 p.m. Oct. 24: The Romney campaign has confirmed that Land O' Lakes stop is on Gov. Mitt Romney's Saturday agenda. For more details and ticket information, check out "Romney Coming to Land O' Lakes Saturday."
Whether Land O’ Lakes residents will play host to a visitor from Massachusetts this Saturday remains an unknown.
According to an article in the Tampa Bay Times, Gov. Mitt Romney’s campaign has been eyeing a Central Pasco stop on Saturday with Land O’ Lakes High School listed as a venue of choice. The Times reported that the rally was tentatively placed on the school website's calendar for Saturday, Oct. 27, but it no longer appears.
Jill Bader, a spokeswoman for the Romney campaign, said Romney’s schedule is still not set in stone. She could not say with certainty if the Republican presidential hopeful would make a stop in Land O’ Lakes.
“We’re looking at several different locations across the state,” Bader said. “Once any schedule gets locked in, I can confirm.”
At this point, the only scheduled stop on Romney’s calendar is in Pensacola.
If Romney did come to town, he wouldn’t be the first big-name politician to pay a visit. Vice President Joe Biden visited students at Oakstead Elementary School in 2011.
