Carrollwood Businessman Says Romney Has What it Takes
The Cuban immigrant says Gov. Mitt Romney has the skills to lead the country.
Robert Penaranda immigrated to the United States from Cuba when he was 8 years old.
Now 58, and the owner of a landscaping business for the past 30 years, Penaranda says Gov. Mitt Romney is who he'll be voting for.
"He's a businessman and the United States is a business and you need a business mind to run it," said Penaranda, a Carrollwood resident.
Penaranda was joined by his wife Marlene at Wednesday's rally in Tampa.
"(President Barack) Obama is going in a different direction and we don't need big government," said Marlene, 57.
Referring to her husband she added, "He's been in business for 30 years and he's hurting right now."
