Bucks County Preparing for Political Limelight

Mitt Romney will hold a rally at Shady Brook Farm Sunday, just two days before the presidential election.

Bucks County is preparing to be in the political limelight just two days before the presidential election.

Mitt Romney announced Thursday that he will hold a rally at Shady Brook Farm in Lower Makefield Township. It’s the latest indication that Romney believes he has a shot to win Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes on Nov. 6.

Shady Brook Farm General Manager Dave Fleming said the whole thing happened “very quickly.” He said the Romney campaign approached him two days ago inquiring if the farm would be available for a rally.  Fleming agreed and Shady Brook was added to a list of six locations being considered for the Philadelphia-area rally.

Fleming said he first found out Shady Brook Farm was selected as the preferred location through published media reports Thursday night, including this one on Patch.

“I think it’s very exciting,” Fleming said. “It’s amazing that Pennsylvania is in the spotlight this late in the election.”

The rally will start at 5:30 p.m. in the field where the annual carnival is held. The field borders the Newtown Bypass and Stony Hill Road. Fleming said the Romney campaign expects between 10,000 and 15,000 attendees at the rally. Click here to reserve tickets.

The Romney campaign is paying to rent the space, Fleming confirmed, adding the rally is not intended to be a political endorsement. He said Shady Brook as a business is remaining politically neutral in the race.

In fact, the Obama campaign approached Shady Brook two weeks ago inquiring about using the farm as a rally location, Fleming said. But nothing came of that inquiry.

“From our standpoint, it’s all or nothing. Everyone is welcome or no one is welcome,” he said, adding the farm has hosted events for candidates of both political affiliations. “I think it’s important to offer all sides an opportunity to get their viewpoint out."

Secret Service agents and campaign event organizers have been at the farm since Thursday morning scoping out the location, Fleming said. He added the farm store will be closed to the public at some point Sunday but exact hours of business for that day have not yet been determined.

Shady Brook Farm is at located 931 Stony Hill Road, Yardley. (Use Morrisville in your GPS.)

It's scary to know that there are folks who, when I ask what they think about Benghazi, they say "Who is he"? We have the MSM to thank for that.

I have to wonder what any Romney voters are thinking. Who knows Romney better than anybody? How about the state who actually voted him in before, as Governor. So let's take a moment to look at how the only state who has any working knowledge about how Romney governs, is voting... http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/ma/massachusetts_romney_vs_obama-1804.html The average of all polls, whether you believe some to be conservative or liberal leaning, still gives Obama a 20+ point lead. So my question is, why aren't more people paying attention to this? You can't shrug it off that it is MA and they always lean this way, because they voted Romney himself in as a Republican. The reality is that Romney can't even get close in this election in the only state that he has governed before, where the people actually know what you get if you vote for Romney. If he was the success that he pretends to be in MA, don't you think that he would be leading in MA or at the very least, have a close race going on there?
