"I have no illusions about the difficulties of the task before us. But whatever challenges lie ahead, we will settle for nothing less than getting America back on the path to full employment and prosperity." Romney has recently turned his atttention to his fight against Obama and getting the U.S. back on track.
“I have experience in the economy that’s going to help me get good jobs for Americans, so we can be secure again,” Romney told Fox News. Many today were distracted by Romney's fundraiser tonight with Donald Trump. The social media has been been abuzz today about Romney not being in Texas for the win.
Instead Romney has turned his focus to beating Obama and was at a Las Vegas fundraiser with celebrity and real estate mogul Donald Trump.
