Romney campaigns at Columbia Lizard’s Thicket
A standing room only crowd greeted presidential candidate Mitt Romney this morning at the Lizard’s Thicket on Elmwood Avenue in Columbia.

Romney is in the state for a two-day swing that began Monday and ends this evening with a reception at the Capital City Club. He’s also supposed to meet with Republican lawmakers this morning at the State House.
At the breakfast, S.C. Sen. Ronnie Cromer, R-Newberry, endorsed Romney for president. Cromer introduced Romney at the restaurant.
