More PA Blitz From Team Romney

Team Romney’s back in Pennsylvania.

After last week’s events, focusing on President Obama’s “Build That” comments, the Romney camp has more activities planned for Thursday. The events will be held in possible battleground states Pennsylvania and Wisconsin as well as in 11 swing states: Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado, Ohio, Virginia and Florida.

While last week’s blitz concentrated on small business; this time around the emphasis is on the middle class, just as in Obama’s new positive ad. The events will also discuss Obama’s ‘unsuccessful’ economic record.

Here are Thursday’s three events.

In a press call Thursday Eric Fehrnstrom, Romney senior adviser, talked about the effects of Romney’s tax plan.

“The bottom line is that Governor Romney has a tax plan that would reduce individual marginal income tax rates across the board by 20 percent while keeping a low tax rate on dividend capital gains and reducing the corporate tax rate to 25 percent and he’s going to do this on a broad based revenue neutral platform.

“This type of reform is something that economists have studied very often in the past and there’s a big literature that suggests that something like this, in some ways modeled after the 1986 Tax Act, you could get a significant amount on economic growth.”

Although Wednesday’s Quinnipiac poll has Obama in the lead in Pennsylvania, 53 to 42, Romney’s recent increase in activity in Pennsylvania shows the GOP candidate working for PA local support.
