“I’m excited. The next president is coming to Radnor Township,” said Alan Brink, chair of the Radnor Republican Party. “It shows that Romney is still interested in Pennsylvania.”

Patch will be live blogging Romney’s event on all of the Main Line area Patch Web sites. Become part of the conversation with us on Twitter.com by using #RomneyPa when tweeting from the event.

According to Mittromney.com, all event attendees will go through airport-like security and should bring as few personal items as possible. No bags, sharp objects, umbrellas, liquids or signs will be allowed in the venue. Cameras are allowed.

“An interesting aspect of this is just how fast these events get put together,” Brink said, adding that emails were flying all day Thursday looking for volunteers.

Radnor Police said that they were only given a day’s notice, too. Read about how local traffic may be affected.

Really!!!! OMG Walst! Thank you! That link to the phone call is amazing and sums it up completely! You have to be a complete moron to vote Republican this election, and I am a Repub Mod who will once again be voting for the best choice...OBAMA! And, oh, by the way, you "READ IT" proponents on the recent health care bill; I can say, with complete confidence, that you are so left field in your "Rightness" that you can't even see how it does you a favor. This BS about how much money it is costing, is just that, BS! Albiet, the law needs to go farther and the responsibility lies with each of us personally to maintain our health. It is not only time to reelect our President and hault the obstruction in the House and Congress, but it is time for all of us to take responsibilty for ourselves, our families, our US of A; This is what President Obama is about. So, whoever it is you vote for, please do yourself and your family and friends a favor and get after your Representative and your Congressmen and let them know you are there all throughout the next four years and beyond. Regardless of who you vote for, let the elected officials aware of who their constituents are and what they are looking for in government. This is your money people, you are paying the salaries of the people who are making decisions for you! BE THERE NOW and AFTER THIS ELECTION NO MATTER WHAT!

I'm a registered Communist, Green Party, Socialist, and I will be voting for Obama three times in Philadelphia, and one time in Florida with my absentee ballot. Oh no I already did vote in Florida.

I am aware that it was taped a long time ago. You said he hasn't been taped saying anything that warrants being covered - I was stating that his redistribution does warrant being covered. Even though it was taped a long time ago it still warrants more coverage than 1/13th of the press Romney is getting for this more recent comments. The public deserves to know what each candidate stands for - and the media shouldn't be editing the news or failing to report certain stories or statements each candidate makes (no matter how long ago it was.)

Curmudgeon, pretending to be someone else is something Romney enjoys as well. Being fake will not make you President and will only attract naive folks. Good luck with that.
