Ann Romney reached out to women and voters who don't believe her husband has a human side in a widely praised Tuesday night speech at the GOP National Convention in Tampa, FL.
Romney's speech drew praise from both the Drudge Report and The Huffington Post – a rare feat. It focused on her life-long relationship with the former Massachusetts governor. She touched on difficult times in their marriage, including her battles with multiple sclerosis and breast cancer and promoted her husband's work ethic. “No one will work harder. No one will care more. No one will move heaven and earth like Mitt Romney to make this country a better place to live,” she said.
Romney was followed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who said Mitt Romney will “tell us the hard truths we need to hear to put us back on the path to growth and create good-paying private-sector jobs again in America.”
Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is set to speak Wednesday night in Tampa in what will essentially be his introduction to the nation. His speech will also set the stage for the 2016 Republican primaries if Romney does not win the White House this November.
