HIGH POINT, N.C.- High Point is the latest stop on Mitt Romney’s road to the White House.  Romney and his new vice president pick, Paul Ryan spoke to thousands of supporters at Absolute Style Furniture in High Point Sunday afternoon.
  An anxious crowd welcome their candidate.  More than 5,000 people lined the streets, holding signs to show their support for the Romney/Ryan team.  It was standing room only inside the furniture factory.  One of Ryan’s early comments got one of the biggest cheers from the crowd, “The idea of america was very clear. Our founders made it very explicit. Our rights come from nature and God and not from government.”

High Point is a city that’s been hit hard and voters had one thing on their agendas.  They wanted to hear about jobs.  “We`re going to champion small business.  It’s going to be good to be in business again,” said Mitt Romney.  Melanie McNamara owns Absolute Style Furniture.  It’s a small company that employs 26 people.  “You know something that Paul Ryan said, and you know and I know.  She built this business, government didn’t,” says Romney. 

The candidates did what they could to convince voters that they have the right plan for the White House. “The world depends on American leadership. We need to restore strong families, strong values, and a strong economy that puts our people to work and a military that`s second to none in the world,” says Romney.

A quick 30 minute political pit stop in High Point proves our state is one both sides are fighting hard for. “We`re counting on North Carolina to help us get the job done. Thank you so much. Thank you,” says Romney.
