Friday, October 5, 2012
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney continues his two-day tour in Virginia Friday with a "coal country event" at Carter Machinery -- a leading Caterpillar dealer in the U.S. Abingdon is located in Washington County in southwestern Virginia. Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, held a rally in Fishersville, Virginia Thursday.
Following today's event, Romney will travel to St. Petersburg, Florida. He'll campaign in the Sunshine State through Sunday.
