1. Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney will begin a six-day bus tour called “Every Town Counts” in New Hampshire on Friday.  The tour will start in the town of Stratham, New Hampshire, where Romney announced his candidacy last year.

    Romney will be visiting five other states on the tour (four of which: Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, are represented in the 12).

    On the tour, Romney plans to highlight the “boundless optimism” of the American small-town family.
