Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is scheduled to speak at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Convention in Reno Tuesday.
The latest information from Romney's campaign is that he will arrive at 11 AM to deliver his address. This stop in the Biggest Little City follows a visit to Southern California for a town hall meeting Monday.
In Costa Mesa, Romney met with small business owners to discuss his stance on the economy. In a Q&A session, the former governor of Massachusetts pointed out the areas where he believes President Obama has it wrong.
"The president needs to spend time with the jobs council," Romney said. "I guess in the last six months he's done 109 fundraisers. He found time for that. I would suggest between the fundraisers, get together with the jobs council and learn from people who are working hard to create jobs."
Romney fielded questions from the group of business owners on job creation and taxes, taking suggestions on what they would like to see improved. The presidential hopeful also addressed healthcare reform, saying he prefers a health care system that puts more power in the free market, and less power in central government.
"I would like to get healthcare to become far more market driven, with much more power in the hands of the consumer," Romney said, "to make choices among different alternatives, to have insurance products that they prefer as opposed to the way the government wants to structure them."
Romney's speech at the VFW will not be open to the public, Channel 2 will carry it live.
