Romney stacked audience at forum with GOP activists after campaign couldn't find studentsdential forum with Republican activists to ensure he would get a raucous welcome when he hit the room, one of the moderators claims.
Mitt also pitched a fit just minutes before the broadcast and refused to come out unless the Spanish language network re-taped the introduction, said Univision anchor Maria Elena Salinas.
“It was a very awkward moment, believe me,” Salinas told BuzzFeed.com.
Romney was apparently upset because co-anchor Jorge Ramos mentioned that Romney had agree to give them 35 minutes while Obama pledged an hour to answer questions the next night, Salinas said.
There was no immediate response to Salinas’ claims from the Romney campaign, but she is a heavy hitter and one of the most influential Spanish-language broadcasters in the country.

2. I wish one of our multi-talented Hispanic DUers would e-mail Univision and let them know how upset

many of us are with Jorge Ramos's cold and rude treatment of the President. I was disgusted with what I've seen and heard. " He used the term "broken promise" re. immigration reform repeatedly, no matter how patiently Obama explained the legislative impossibilities to him. Nice to see the whole set-up revealed" as reported by another DUer.
