Romney camp cancels Orlando stop scheduled in Florida due to exhaustion

Presumptive Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney will be touring the state of Florida today, but he is no longer visiting Orlando, his campaign announced late Sunday night. 

Romney is said to be exhausted after 48 hours of promoting his new vice presidential pick, Paul Ryan, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Romney's Florida tour begins in St. Augustine, before heading to Miami this afternoon.

However, his new vice president running mate Paul Ryan will be in Iowa attending the Iowa State Fair.

Democrats suggest Ryan's presence on the ticket could hurt Romney among Florida voters because of Ryan's well-known budget proposals.

They include drastic changes in the Medicare and social security programs.
