Mitt Romney is taking it old-school, embarking a five-day road trip Friday morning that may not set tongues wagging like his now-infamous family voyage to Canada when he strapped poor family dog Seamus to the roof of the station wagon, but could turn out to be rather interesting. That’s because the GOP White House hopeful has got some uninvited travel companions on what his campaign has dubbed the “Every Town Counts” tour.
The Democratic National Committee plans to hit each of the six battleground states where Romney aims to highlight how President Obama has allegedly ignored Americans’ “everyday concerns” and offered them “no hope for the future.” The DNC is calling its trip the “Middle Class Under the Bus” tour and each stop will “feature representatives from Massachusetts who will speak from firsthand knowledge about what Romney Economics meant for economic growth and the middle class” during the his tenure as governor.
And it’s not the only organization hitching its wagon to the event. MoveOn.org plans to send protesters to each of the sites where the GOP candidate is scheduled to deliver speeches and also is following the tour in its “Romneymobile,” an SUV tricked out with decals of his largest corporate sponsors and a fake dog strapped to the roof. The group is calling its version of the trip the “Every Millionaire Counts” tour.
