TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Ann Romney is declaring that her husband Mitt Romney will lift up America if elected president.
Excerpts of her speech to the Republican National Convention were released before her address Tuesday night. In those remarks, she says, "This is the man America needs."
Mrs. Romney talks of her 43-year marriage to the just-nominated Republican presidential candidate, speaking of her own experiences with muscular sclerosis and breast cancer and says her husband is a man who wakes up every day determined to solve the problems that others say can't be solved.
Saying she was standing on the platform as a wife, a mother, a grandmother and an American, she said that Romney will not fail. In her words, "This man will not let us down."
