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 Blvd. 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.

Just a short time ago the county organization was all for Newt, collecting Newt delegates, but now they're for Mitt. During the last Governor's race they supported 3 or 4 different candidates, bouncing from one to another and back again. What gives$$$? or is it who gives? The next candidate to dangle some baubles wins their vote. Lets' see who gets' their endorsement in the upcomming US Senate, congressionals, State Senate and Assembly contests. Just wave carrots those on a stick, as long as the carrots are still green
