Romney went campaigning across flood ravaged Louisiana on his quest for the White House. Romney went with his pal, LA Gov Bobby Jindahl. They drove through a town that was flooded by Hurricane Isaac.
Romney and Jindahl spent about an hour meeting with first responders and local officials. Romney shook hands with National Guardsmen outside the U.S. Post Office and talked with a local resident, Jodie Chiarello, 42, who lost her home in Isaac's flooding. Jody told Romney she just lost her home to the flood and "He just told me to, um, there's assistance out there," Chiarello said of her conversation with Romney. "He said, go home and call 211." That's a public service number offered in some states.
