Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will speak at Seven Cities Sod, 12554 210th St., Davenport, on Monday afternoon.

Mr. Romney's visit comes hot on the heels of President Obama's rally in Davenport last week as both campaigns focus on battleground states such as Iowa.

Mr. Romney recently stopped in Cedar Rapids, and, like the president, has made multiple campaign visits to Iowa this year.

The former Massachusetts governor last spoke in the Quad-Cities in August during a campaign event at LeClaire Manufacturing in Bettendorf.

Doors for Monday's event open at 12:45 p.m., and the program is scheduled to begin at 2:45 p.m., according to www.mittromney.com/IA.

Tickets to the event will be available online and at the Davenport Victory Office, 311 West Kimberly Road, Davenport, today between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m., and on Monday between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.
