The front-runner in the race for the Republican presidential nomination held a town hall meeting in Green Bay Monday, the day before Wisconsin voters cast their ballots in the state’s presidential primary. Mitt Romney said he’s already looking forward to the general election and his first priority as president. “On day one I will stop Obamacare in its tracks. We’ll get it repealed, and return to you the authority and responsibility for your own health care,” Romney promised.

The former Massachusetts Governor said he’s also willing to work across the aisle. “My legislature was 85 percent Democrat, and it did not take me long to learn that to get anything done I had to make sure we had good relationships on a personal basis,” he said. “And if I wanted to get a bill passed, we had to find common ground. We had to find things that both sides agreed on.”
Romney planned to remains in Wisconsin through Tuesday night. He’s to watch election results in Milwaukee. The most recent poll shows him ahead of former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum by seven points in Wisconsin.
