Romney campaign video criticizes Obama’s role in Allentown

    Presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both came to town today.

    While Obama stuck close by in Philly, Romney headed to Allentown, specifically to the Allentown Metal Works.

     

    Obama was there two years ago, touting the importance of manufacturing jobs. But the Metal Works closed this year. In a video Romney released yesterday, his campaign complies new clips of Obama’s tour and his calling the plant a “symbol of hope.”
