BOSTON (AP) —
Mitt Romney's campaign had planned an eight-minute, $25,000 fireworks show to celebrate a presidential victory that never materialized.
The fireworks were scheduled to be shot from a barge in Boston Harbor within sight of the Republican's election night party at the
Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.
Instead, Atlas Professional Fireworks Displays unloaded the pyrotechnics from mortars on the barge and carted them back to company headquarters in Jaffrey, N.H.
A permit filed with the city said the fireworks show could have occurred between 7 p.m. Tuesday, just after the first polls closed, and 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.
