Wednesday afternoon in front of a full house at the Rosen Plaza Hotel, former President Bill Clinton gave local Democrats a taste of what they missed in Charlotte during the DNC.
Introduced by former Police Chief and congressional candidate Val Demings, Clinton went through the same talking points that made his speech last week so popular. He talked about President Barack Obama‘s first term and reiterated that no one could have repaired what he had to. He batted at the Romney/Ryan policies accusing them of “trickle down” economics and promoted teamwork on capitol hill.
Down the road, Ann Romney spoke to an overflow crowd in Largo. Coming off of her own well received convention speech, Romney focused on her husband’s commitment to her family and his devotion to the country.
Those two stories sweep your Thursday morning political headlines.
