APOPKA, Fla. - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney addressed supporters at a campaign stop in Apopka Saturday evening.
Saturday's rally in Apopka is part of Governor Romney's campaign trail through Florida. On Friday, Romney addressed supporters in St. Petersburg.
Thousands of people packed the Northwest Recreation Complex off Jason Dwelley Parkway Saturday afternoon. Romney delivered his remarks shortly after 7:00 p.m.
At the start of the rally, Romney appeared on stage with his wife, Ann, before he patted himself on the back for his performance in Wednesday's debate.
"I enjoyed the debate a good deal, I gotta tell you," Governor Romney said.
During his speech, Romney heavily criticized President Obama for his performance at the debate.
"Instead of focusing on jobs he instead focused on Obamacare," Romney said.
Romney told the crowd if he wins the election, which is now just one month away, Obamacare will be repealed. Additionally, Romney presented five structured points about how he would improve America. He discussed beefing up trade with Latin America and championing small businesses to succeed.
"Honestly, he's a real American. You could feel the heart in the crowd," said Romney supporter Peter Ebinger.
Romney told his supporters that Florida needs to stand behind him.
"I'm counting on Florida to win this for me on November 6 so we can take back this country," Romney said.
Meanwhile, President Obama took Saturday off from his campaign to celebrate his 20th wedding anniversary, which fell on the same day as the debate in Denver. On Friday, Obama made two campaign stops in Virginia and Ohio.
