MAULDIN, S.C. — Mitt Romney didn't win in South Carolina in 2008, but he's back in the state and looking to capitalize on his strong position atop this year's field of Republican presidential candidates. He hopes to sway voters who were cool to him four years ago.
Romney spent part of Veterans Day with military veterans at a barbecue restaurant near Greenville. He said the best way to help service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan is to fix the economy so they can find jobs once they're home.
Romney also suggested he was open to the possibility of introducing a voluntary voucher program to the Veterans Affairs health care system. He says such a system could give veterans money to buy private insurance instead of getting care from the government.
