Mitt Romney is the third Republican presidential hopeful to make a trip to Jackson in the past few days.

Like his opponents, Romney is doing everything he can to rally support and win votes for Tuesday's primary election. The GOP's top presidential contender quickly learned how to introduce himself to a southern crowd.

"The Governor said I had to say it right, morning y'all," Romney joked.

After some laughter, Romney took little time addressing what he thinks is wrong with President Obama's administration.

"We have fewer jobs, we have more debt and we have bigger government, that's what's wrong with this President," he said.

As President, Romney promises the contrary. More jobs, less debt and smaller government. Those are guarantees that supporters on banking on if Romney is elected.

"Reducing the debt is definitely my main priority too that's what he really talked about we have to be proud of our country and that's one of the ways we can do it," Romney supporter Laura Burt said.

Romney says the way he will reduce the country's debt is by cutting programs like the President's healthcare plan.

"I'm comfortable with cutting our spending capping our spending and balancing our books finally and getting America fiscally responsible again," he explains.

Romney was endorsed by Governor Phil Bryant this past week.

Following his visit in Jackson, Romney traveled to Birmingham, AL.
