Romney supporters celebrate projected win

The crowd at Mitt Romney's Election Night party cheered and supporters snapped photos of a TV screen after Fox News projected the former Massachusetts guv would win Wisconsin.

Hundreds of people jammed into a room at the Historic Grain Exchange in Milwaukee. There were no tables or chairs, and supporters were standing shoulder-to-shoulder in the room.

Dale Stearman of Kenosha brought his family to the party, including teen sons Nathan, 17, and Cameron, 15.

"Romney has business experience and as a business consultant. That's what I look for," he said. "The problem I have with politicians is they take our money and make plans and regulations, but don't see it through."

Not long after the polls closed, Romney's campaign released some of his prepared remarks.

Romney plans to tick off a series of negatives about the economy.

"And when you drive home tonight and stop at a gas station, just take a look at the prices and ask yourself, 'Four more years?'" Romney planned to say.

"It's enough to make you think that years of flying around on Air Force One, surrounded by an adoring staff of true believers telling you what a great job you are doing, well, that might be enough to make you a little out of touch."
