Romney Misses Critical Iowa Rally, Found Asleep on Campaign Bus Couch
By Steven Tobiasz
DES MOINES, IA — Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney regretfully missed a key campaign rally in Iowa on Tuesday afternoon. The Presidential hopeful was scheduled to give a speech to a crowd of more than 5,000 gathered students at the University of Iowa, yet he simply never showed.
An aide from the Romney Campaign noted, “We were worried when he didn’t show up in the morning, and we immediately knew something was wrong.”
Nearly an hour after the rally was scheduled to take place, Romney was found face down on a couch in his campaign bus, with his extension chord removed from the bus outlet.
The campaign believes that while Mr. Romney was plugged in to charge overnight, his
power source was knocked out of the outlet due to heavy road construction along their campaign route.
The campaign is playing off the missed rally and calling it a “mechanical issue.”
