An 'exhausted' Romney cancels Orlando event

St. Augustine, Fla. -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney canceled a planned Monday visit to Orlando during his campaign swing through Florida.

Romney, coming off 48 hours of intense campainging with his new running mate, Paul Ryan, is exhausted, The Orlando Sentinel reported.

The campaign denied the Sentinel's story, saying that it needed to build a couple hours of down-time for the candidate to rest, have meetings and to work on a major speech scheduled for Tuesday in Ohio.

"It's just totaly not accurate," campaign adviser Kevin Madden said, referring to the Sentinel report. "We have a packed schedule and a full day."

Romney gave a speech to several thousand packing the lawn at Flagler College in St. Augustine Monday morning. In the afternoon, he was scheduled to stump in Miami.
