Romney Woos Crowd With McCain Jabs and Tough Immigration Talk

Candidates are making last minute rounds in San Diego. Republican candidate Mitt Romney was here last night, and he was not alone. KPBS reporter Nicole Lozare has that story.

Romney arrived at the San Diego County Administration Building to a couple hundred supporters chanting his name.

In his 15-minute speech, Romney spent some time attacking Republican frontrunner John McCain.

Romney also repeated the litany of his primary issues for the faithful -- from his passion for stronger family values to his battle against illegal immigration.

But when people simply overstay their visas or come across the border uninvited that something's that's got to end -- and I will end it!

Other presidential hopefuls have pre-primary stops in San Diego for some last minute campaigning. Republican candidate Mike Huckabee was in town last night. Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is at San Diego State University today.
