— Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will make a stop in Morrisville Sunday as part of a four-day, four-state bus tour.

The "Romney Plan For A Stronger Middle Class” bus tour begins Saturday in Virginia, visits the Tar Heel State Sunday and continues in Florida and Ohio.

All four states on the tour voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and have already seen an influx of television ad spending in anticipation of a tight November outcome. Polls have shown that Romney and Obama have been running almost dead even for months. 

Romney will appear at Smokey's Shack, a barbecue restaurant at 10800 Chapel Hill Road, at 4 p.m. Sunday. Doors to the event open at 3 p.m.
