BEALLSVILLE, Ohio — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has promised voters in coal-rich eastern Ohio that America won’t have to buy oil from Venezuela or the Middle East by the time his second term ends in 2021.
Romney stopped Tuesday outside a coal mine in Beallsville, where he said the U.S. would be independent from energy sources outside North America if he were elected in November and served two, four-year terms.
Mandel says that would happen only, in his words, “over our dead bodies.”
Romney was finishing a four-day bus tour with three stops in Ohio.
