Romney to feature personal side at convention
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Mitt Romney is about to get personal.
The GOP's presidential nominee-to-be wants to use his four-day party next week in Florida to play up his life story. It will follow a summer filled with a barrage of TV ads that cast him as a ruthless and out-of-touch businessman. Those were courtesy of President Barack Obama and his allies.
So Romney will surround himself with his five sons, five daughters-in-law and 15 of his 18 grandchildren. Romney's wife, Ann, will play her biggest role yet.
A parade of athletes Romney met as an Olympic organizer, such as hockey legend Mike Eruzione, will be on hand. So will doting parishioners he helped as a lay pastor in the Mormon Church in Boston.
