Mitt Romney to campaign in Los Angeles, Costa Mesa today

September 17, 2012 |  8:25 am

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney landed at Los Angeles International Airport on Monday morning and was on his way to speak to the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Romney will address the 33rd annual convention at the JW Marriott on Olympic Boulevard in downtown Los Angeles and will also release a new television ad highlighting his plans for economic recovery, including confronting China on its trade policies, according to reports.

Democrats have scheduled a news conference following Romney's speech to "provide an overview of the many areas where Mitt Romney’s policies would hurt the middle class and stifle small business growth," according to a news statement.

Speakers will include Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Los Angeles).

Los Angeles police said they do not expect any significant traffic delays. Romney is scheduled to attend a fundraiser in Costa Mesa this afternoon.
