Romney supporters attend RNC Watch Party in Kenwood

KENWOOD, OH (FOX19) - Dozens of Mitt Romney supporters came together in Kenwood Thursday night for an RNC Convention Watch Party.

On Wednesday, the Romney-Ryan campaign announced a series of these watch parties throughout Ohio.

Republicans say polls across the country point to a surge of support for the Romney-Ryan ticket and declining faith in President Obama's ability to right the sluggish national economy.

Romney's people claim the country is ready for a new direction that promises better future for middle class families and it is that vision that the governor will display tonight when he accepts the Republican nomination . "I think he'll just reinforce his belief in the American people to turn things around, get this country working, get our oil produced and just make the country much better. We're way too far in debt," said Romney campaign volunteer, Sharon Weckel.

In FOX19's commitment to balanced news, President Obama's campaign office on Main Street in Over-the-Rhine also had a comment on Romney's visit to Cincinnati on Saturday. "I don't expect to hear anything different from him. Pretty much, he's going to get rid of planned parenthood," said Obama campaign volunteer, Erma Baugh-Schaffer. "So, you know, I don't really know what he's about. So maybe the people that are at his rally on Saturday, maybe they'll tell him something."

Mitt Romney will attend what his campaign is calling "A Victory Rally with Mitt and the Republican team" this Saturday at Union Terminal. The door will open at 8 and the event will begin at 10 a.m. The museum center will remain closed to the public until 2 p.m. on Saturday.
