Mitt Romney talks about economy and taxes in Avon Lake

AVON LAKE — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is speaking to the crowd packed into the Avon Lake High School gym, telling them about his plans if he’s elected in eight days.

Romney has focused on the economy and taxes so far. But he also has criticized President Barack Obama’s policies, which he blamed the nation’s economic woes on.

He promised to make a number of changes if elected, including cutting the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent.

“Our campaign is about real change for Day 1,” Romney said.
