Mitt Romney’s squad of surrogates hit campaign trails across the country on Monday, including two key regions in Virginia: Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads.
Former GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich campaigned for his one-time rival in Arlington, hammering Obama and taking questions from the press. Gingrich even weighed in on the recent fallout from Romney’s “culture” remarks in Israel.
“I think it’s fair to say why are some places poor, and maybe it’s not just because they’ve been deprived. Maybe it’s also because they don’t have either the right habits, the right legal structure or the right system of encouragement.”
John McCain was joined by a trio of U.S. Senators in Norfolk to campaign for Romney. They discussed defense budget cuts and called for a compromise that would cut spending and raise money by eliminating specific tax breaks.
