      Mitt Romney stops in Florence

      Mitt Romney made only one campaign appearance in South Carolina the day after the FoxNews/SCGOP debate, and that stop was in Florence.

      Romney held a grassroots rally to discuss jobs and the economy at the Florence Civic Center.

      About 100 people attended the event.

      Romney said, if elected president, his priorities would be to balance the budget.

      He talked about marriage and his support of the idea that it is between a man and a woman.

      Romney said America needs to be an opportunity nation and not a welfare nation.

      After the town hall meeting, Romney sat down with WPDE's Tim McGinnis for a one-on-one interview. We'll have that coming up tonight on NewsChannel 15 at 6. We'll also post the entire interview right here on CarolinaLive.com.
