Romney’s La Jolla appearance likely to attract protesters

Former Massachussetts Governor Mitt Romney will face a demonstration tonight when he appears at the Deseret Bookstore to sign his new book, “No Apology: The Case for American Greatness.”

The booksigning event, which starts at 6 p.m. at the sore at 8657 Villa La Jolla Drive, has drawn the attention of Californians Against Hate who sent an e-mail today, that asks Romney “to urge the Mormon Church to stop its nasty campaign to ban gay marriage,” in ads running throughout San Diego next week.

The group, which said its members will gather at the store at 5:30 p.m., said it “is organizing the friendly demonstration to welcome the former Massachusetts governor to San Diego.”
