Romney promises to save southern economy

BLUFFTON, S.C. (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has exchanged his talk about laid off auto workers in Michigan for laid off textile workers in South Carolina. Romney was in Bluffton yesterday, telling senior citizens at the Sun City Hilton Head Retirement center he would pay attention to textile and other job losses causing problems in the South. The former Massachusetts governor says Washington has watched as textile and furniture jobs have gone away. Romney says he will fight for every job. Romney repeated his criticism of Republican rival John McCain for saying some automotive jobs will not be replaced. McCain has suggested Romney is pandering for votes and ignoring the realities of the global economy. Romney canceled stops in Spartanburg and Greenville counties today.
