Mitt Romney Visits Isaac Flood Victims in Louisiana [PHOTOS]

The day after accepting the Republican Party’s presidential nomination, Mitt Romney canceled an appearance Friday and came to Louisiana to see the flooded areas near New Orleans, acknowledging the damage caused by Hurricane Isaac.

Romney told Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and U.S. Sen. David Vitter, “I’m here to learn and obviously to draw some attention to what’s going on here so that people around the country know that people down here need help.”

Before coming to Louisiana, Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, held a rally in Lakeland, Fla., between Tampa and Orlando. Romney critiqued Obama’s economic record and asked supporters to help him win in Florida.

Romney told the crowd, “For that to happen, you’re going to have to go out and find a person or two who voted for Barack Obama, I know they’re here. They’re not as visible as they used to be. You can see some of the glue on the back of their bumper sticker where it used to be, and so you can find them. But you find them and convince them to get on our team and to help us, because we want to be held accountable for the promises we made last night and the night before.”
