A television anchor with Spanish language television network Univision has revealed that Mitt Romney demanded his own supporters were bussed in to fill seats for a televised forum in Miami, due to a lack of sympathetic students to fill the stands.
When the University of Miami played host to a televised Univision forum featuring GOP presidential canditate Mitt Romney, there was a slight problem. There simply weren't "enough 'enthusiastic' and 'sympathetic' students to fill the seats", Fox News reported.
Univision anchor Maria Elena Salinas told Buzzfeed that although campaign teams for President Obama and Romney had agreed to fill the seats with students, the Romney camp demanded an "exemption to the students-only rule." The network backed down and allowed Romney to "bus in rowdy activists from around southern Florida."
Even with seats filled with rowdy Romney supporters the star of the show found another issue to complain about when he discovered that Univision was planning to give Obama 25 minutes more airtime than himself. Co-anchor Jorge Ramos surprised Romney when he mentioned this in his introduction. Romney promptly refused to come on stage until the introduction was re-shot.
