Romney May Visit Queens, Says Bayside GOPer

While some prominent Queens Republicans support Romney, Councilman Dan Halloran rallied for Ron Paul.

Gov. Mitt Romney may make a stop in Queens, says former GOP Assembly Candidate Vince Tabone.

Tabone, who lives in Bayside, spoke with the presidential aspirant during his Feb. 28 victory party in Michigan. He was on the trip with several other New York City GOPers, including Queens Party Chairman Phil Ragusa.

“The party chairman implored him to visit the boroughs,” said Tabone. The former Massachusetts governor then purportedly told the mixed group of Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens Republicans, “I’m going to be in New York and I’m going to try to visit each and every one of you.”

A call to Romney's campaign office to confirm the candidate's travel plans has not yet been returned. If Romney does visit Queens, he’ll have a receptive audience with Tabone, who called Romney, “the strongest, most coherent candidate.”

Tabone’s friend and Councilman, Dan Halloran, R-Whitestone, seems not to agree.

Photos of Halloran attending a Get Out The Vote event for Ron Paul Rally on Bell Boulevard were displayed on the councilman’s Facebook page on Saturday.

Halloran ran for the District 19 council seat with the endorsement of the Libertarian Party as well as on the Republican, Conservative, Independence and lines.

Yes, please do give a warm GOP welcome to Mitt-the-Fraud. That is all.
