PAINESVILLE -- Mitt Romney, spoke at a rally at Lake Erie College in Painesville Friday afternoon. The speech came just moments after a somber ceremony concluded in Washington, where the remains of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were returned to the U.S. from Libya.
Romney asked the crowd to observe a moment of silence and paid tribute to the four victims.
"And I'd ask that you might each place your hand over your heart in recognition of the blood shed for freedom by them and by our other sons and daughters who've lost their lives in the cause of America and the cause of liberty and if we'll take a moment of silence together."
Following the tribute, Romney went on with the rally and his plan to pull the economy out of the doldrums.
