Ann Romney is on schedule to speak toward the later end of tonight's events (10 p.m.-ish) at the Republican convention in Tampa. Romney's speech was originally scheduled for yesterday but was switched to Tuesday after Republican officials were unable to convince ABC, NBC and CBS to cover the convention Monday.
Politico has a look at what to expect.
“She will step back from her stump speech and outline the tenets of Mitt Romney’s life,” said Katie Packer Gage, deputy campaign manager.
“It will be a bigger, broader speech that will go back to Mitt’s earlier life, the values his parents gave him, his life as a successful businessman, as head of the Olympics, as governor, as a father and husband.’” ...
“You will learn that the Romney family is not that different from other families when it comes to dealing with personal challenges and medical crises,” says Eric Fehrnstrom, Romney’s closest adviser and confidant. “Ann has a saying: ‘Everyone has his or her own bag of rocks to carry.’ In the case of the Romney family, it has been her diagnosis with multiple sclerosis and later her cancer scare.
“To the extent people want to know a more personal side of Mitt Romney, Ann Romney will be that messenger,” Fehrnstrom said.
Mitt Romney said he's heard Ann's speech already. "I really like Ann's speech," he said yesterday while in New Hampshire. CBS News reported last night that Mitt will be arrive in Tampa this morning to attend the speech.
