ST. GEORGE — While visiting Southern Utah as a part of a tour to various parts of the state, Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney stopped by St. George News and parent company Canyon Media on Tuesday to share what he was doing in this corner of the state while also speaking to issues of local and national interests.
Romney first joined longtime Canyon Media radio personality Carl Lamar for a discussion on the air followed soon after by an interview with St. George News.
"I wanted to get a chance to see what the weather is doing here and what kind of climate we're experiencing and how it's affecting the community here," Romney said when asked what brought him to St. George.
"I also wanted to talk to some local businesses and spend some time at Utah Tech (University) and see what their vision is for the future for their institution and for the region. … It's very, very impressive."
