Topics: Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Republicans, Politics,

The Romney campaign announced that it was canceling a Monday campaign stop in Orlando because the candidate was too exhausted after nearly 48 hours of pushing Paul Ryan as his V.P. pick, the Orlando Sentinel reported, citing a campaign official.

Romney was set to stop early Monday afternoon in Conway, Florida, in the house of attorney Christi Adams and her fiance Jeff Lawson, a software engineer who ran for the Florida House of Representatives early this year. A spokesman for the campaign told the Sentinel that the cancelation was due to exhaustion and that Romney would soon return to Florida. He added that it had nothing to do with the fact that the couple is not married.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schulz suggested that Romney changed his plans because Paul Ryan would increase Medicare costs for seniors.
