TAMPA, Fla. - Ann Romney will praise her husband, Mitt, in a speech to the Republican convention on Tuesday as a determined problem solver who can turn around the United States.
In remarks prepared for delivery to the Tampa, Florida, convention just hours after Romney was formally nominated as the party's presidential candidate, Ann Romney painted a positive picture of the man she has known for nearly 50 years.
She said her husband has attacked every challenge he has faced - from reviving the struggling Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002 to helping her battle multiple sclerosis and breast cancer.
"At every turn in his life, this man I met at a high school dance has helped lift up others," said Romney, 63. "He did it with the Olympics, when many wanted to give up."
