CV: Mitt Romney will bring his Republican presidential campaign to Northeast Pennsylvania for the first time on Thursday during a mid-afternoon visit to a Tunkhannock gas industry-related business.
The Romney campaign said the former Massachusetts governor will appear at 2:45 p.m. at Mountain Energy Services Inc., 16 Creekshore Road, Tunkhannock. The site is on Route 92 just north of Route 6 and Deer Park Lumber.
Mountain Energy provides equipment for the natural gas drilling industry.
The latest PPP poll has Romney taking the lead over former Senator Rick Santorum (R-VA).
Romney takes the lead in Pennsylvania
Mitt Romney's taken the lead in PPP's newest poll of Rick Santorum's home state of Pennsylvania. Romney has 42% to 37% for Santorum with Ron Paul at 9% and Newt Gingrich at 6%. The numbers represent a dramatic turnaround from when PPP polled the state a month ago. Romney's gained 17 points, going from 25% to 42%. Meanwhile Santorum's dropped 6 points from 43% to 37%, for an overall swing of 23 points in the last four weeks.
Rick is running to be the GOP frontrunner 2016 but if he loses PA in this election after getting blown out in 2006 that may end that hope.
A welcome committee led by Gene Stilp will be there to greet him.
Mitt Romney is going to be in the 11th District, in Tunkhannock, on Thursday, to visit a manufacturing plant that supplies and operates equipment used for fracking. We need to send him a message about the dangers of fracking. I invite you to join me and Pignelope, the Pink Pig to tell him that this process and its effects are wrong!
Help Gene Meet Mitt!

Let's show Mitt Romney that fracking will pollute our water supply and harm our environment for decades to come. Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg with the problems with fracking. Mitt Romney has no idea what his buddy, Tom Corbett has done to let the gas companies off the hook. Help me tell him what Tom Corporate has done to give them tax breaks after they contributed over a million dollars to his campaign.
This is your chance to put your clean water advocate in Congress. Gene has fought for the Susquehanna and our environment for years.
