A grand and important moment took place this morning at about 8:40 A.M. eastern time.
Governor Mitt Romney, Republican presidential nominee, and his wife, Ann, cast their ballots for the United States presidency at the Beech Street Center precinct near their home in bedford, Massachusetts.
I’m pretty sure we know who they voted for!
The GOP candidate, accompanied by his wife, Ann, told reporters he feels “very, very good” about his overall chances and “great about Ohio.”
A fairly large crowd greeted the Romneys when they arrived at the polling station, according to reports. …[A] woman held a sign that read: “Mitt and Ann enjoy your new White House.”
Romney shared a kiss with Ann after casting his vote, whose stop at the polling station was just the start of a busy election day for the GOP nominee. He heads next to Cleveland, Ohio, where running mate Paul Ryan is expected to pay a visit as well. Then Romney heads onward to Pittsburgh while Ryan travels to Richmond, before reuniting for the Republican ticket’s election night party in Boston.
Romney son Tagg and little cutie patootie grandson, Joseph, went with The Gov to Cleveland where they will join with Paul Ryan to do a little retail politicking. Romney will then go on to Pittsburgh, PA, and Ryan will go to Richmond, VA. Ann Romney will remain in Boston today where all will reunite to await election results.
Obama is in Chicago today making a few phone calls and playing basketball.
Senior Romney Campaign Adviser Ed Gillespie appeared early this morning on FOX & Friends. “Mitt Romney will win decisively.”
Ed Gillespie: “The fact is, we can’t afford four more years like the last four years. And Governor Romney has been out there putting forward a positive vision and a plan to turn the economy around, to create 12 million jobs, unleash domestic energy, get us to a balanced budget. That’s why he’s got momentum here on election day. And I think that’s why he’s going to win tonight, not just win, but win decisively. I don’t think there’s going to be any doubt at the end of tonight who the next president is going to be.”
