Romney No Longer Planning Annapolis Visit
Initial plans included a private lunch at the Naval Academy.
UPDATE (3:30 p.m.)—Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is still scheduled to be in Maryland Wednesday, but that visit will not include a stop in Annapolis.
Early reports had the GOP leader scheduled for a private lunch at the Naval Academy with U.S. Sen. John McCain, but The Capital reported that the two politicians couldn’t accommodate the meeting in their schedules.
Naval Academy officials said they did not have any further details Monday morning.
According to a blog in The Baltimore Sun, Romney is set to visit various other spots around the state, including a town hall meeting in Arbutus and a rally in Frederick.
A story in The Maryland Gazette said the Romney campaign is still finalizing his schedule and confirming details.
Louis Pope, co-chairman of the Monday campaign in Maryland, told The Capital the schedule should be finalized later today. Campaign and security officials were still visiting sites and confirming details, he said.
