ST. AUGUSTINE, Florida (WTLV) -- Presidential candidate Mitt Romney made a campaign stop in St. Augustine.

Gov. Romney spoke on the west lawn of Flagler College Monday morning starting around 9:15.

While in St. Augustine, Romney centered in on the economy, saying that 8.5 million homes have been foreclosed on and laid the blame with President Barack Obama.

"A record level is not success, Mr. President. We need to help the people in Florida with housing policies that get
housing prices up again and let people stay in their homes," said Romney. 

Gates opened at 7 a.m. and the speech was open to the public.

Congressman Paul Ryan will not be accompanying Romney during his Florida trip.  Instead, Ryan will likely make an appearance in Central Florida next weekend.

Gov. Romney has canceled his Orlando stop that was slated for Monday after intense campaigning over the weekend.  He will still be speaking at an event in Miami Monday night.
