Romney visits El Palacio Del Los Jugos
SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- Mitt Romney held a campaign event Monday evening at a Miami juice shop in front of hundreds of supporters.
"The next president of the United States of America, Mitt Romney!" said Florida Senator Marco Rubio.
Romney spoke at El Palacio de los Jugos in Coral Way, Monday afternoon. "This is the team, this is the family. This team, this family are going to help me win the White House this November," he said.
Romney's trip to South Florida is his second to last stop on his swing-state bus tour. He spent Monday morning in St. Augustine before speaking in South Florida. "I want more trade," said Romney. "It's good for us to be able to trade with other nations. That creates more jobs here. There's a huge market right next door where we can do more trade; it's known as Latin America."
Supporters were pleased with the Republican presidential candidate's speech. "He did a fantastic job. We love him, and we think he's going to be the next president of the United States," said Ralph Andrade.
"I am so excited. I think there is hope; the announcement of Ryan being the vice president," said Maria Fernandez.
After the event, Romney attended a private fundraiser in Fort Lauderdale. From there he will head to Ohio.
