Thursday was a big night for Mitt Romney in Tampa, but he quickly hopped back on the campaign trail.
It will be the toughest 67 days of Romney's life in the buildup to the election, and Friday morning he said hello to Lakeland and then goodbye to Florida in a farewell event.
"This is Romney-Ryan country," said Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam before Romney and vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan took the stage.
"Thanks for your hospitality, Florida," Ryan said.
Romney was joined by Ryan, Putnam, Connie Mack and Pam Bondi at the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport, where he continued to attack President Barack Obama on his economic policies.
"He said he would cut the deficit. He doubled it," Romney said.
Hundreds of showed up to the event, hoping to catch a glimpse of Romney before he leaves the state on his final campaigning push.
Romney also reemphazied his points from Thursday night's speech, saying there are five critical parts to his plan: gain energy independence, open up new trade agreements, strengthen the education system, get America on track to cutting the deficit and repeal Obamacare.
