Presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney visited Connecticut today ahead of the state’s April 24 primary. Following Rick Santorum’s exit from the race on Monday, Romney traveled to a small printing business in Hartford Wednesday afternoon to deliver a speech to an audience of Connecticut Republican leaders and female business owners.
A half-dozen members of the Yale College Democrats attended the speech to protest Gov. Romney’s unfair economic policies and charges against the President. (No members of the Yale College Republicans attended the speech.)
In a statement to the Yale Daily News, Dems’ elections coordinator Josh Rubin said, “I think the fact that no Yale Republicans were in attendance is indicative of Mitt Romney’s difficulty connecting with young voters.” Given the “palpable” excitement for Obama and Romney’s lack of charisma, Obama will be able to win another presidency, Rubin predicted.
Romney traveled to Warwick, R.I. following the Hartford event.
