Romney in S. Florida ahead of GOP debate

MIAMI (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney brings his campaign to South Florida a day before the next big GOP debate in Orlando.

Romney had a town hall meeting set Wednesday in Miami. A campaign spokesman says Romney will discuss his plans to improve the economy, create jobs and protect Social Security and then take questions.

Romney has been seeking to contrast his position on Social Security with that of Texas Gov. Rick Perry and other Republican candidates.

The spokesman says the event at a Miami hotel is open to the public.

The GOP presidential candidates are set Wednesday night to hold their next debate in Orlando. Before that the candidates are appearing at an event sponsored by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, a conservative group that focuses on social issues.
