Thousands attend Romney rally in Sidney

About 9,000 supporters welcomed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney (pictured) to the Shelby County Fairgrounds Wednesday night, capping a two-day visit around our state.

His 20-minute speech in Sidney focused on jobs, energy, health care, and taxes.

The former Massachusetts governor appealed to many farmers, promising a better trade agreement for the United States.

He said President Obama's tax plan would eliminate about 700,000 jobs while his plan would create about 7 million jobs.

“There’s a high cost to re-electing President Obama,” Romney said. “The median income in this country has dropped by $4,300 per family."

“These are tough times. The president’s answer to this is to say he’s going to save Big Bird. My view is it’s better to have a president that’s going to save the American family and help people across this country."

Romney vowed to bring a pipeline from Alaska through Canada and into the United States to help reduce energy costs.

Many attendees waved signs that said Farmers for Mitt.

The Shelby County Sheriff's Office and the Sidney Police Department provided security at the event, which went smoothly.

Romney made stops in Mt. Vernon and Delaware earlier in the day.

He will return to Ohio on Saturday, campaigning in Portsmouth and Lebanon.
