Ann Romney: The Romney Dems Worry About the Most
Belmont already knows the nice and genuine Romney, soon the country will also, says Politico.
If there is one member of the Romney family who has connected to Belmont residents, it would be Mitt Romney's wife, Ann.
Having lived in Belmont since she was in her early 20s in the mid-1970s, Ann Romney is a familiar figure in Belmont, accompanying her children and now grandchildren around town, in the Center shopping, buying seafood at Frankie's or getting her hair done.
And the opinion among residents who have met her socially, politically or on the street is universal: Ann Romney is a really nice lady. Genuine and pleasant, her personal appeal transcends the notable liberal leanings of the town. When you meet Ann, you like her.
While it's mostly certain her husband will lose his hometown in November in a likely match-up with President Obama, if Ann was on the top of the Republican ticket, the GOP just might win Belmont for the first time since the 1960s.
And now the country will soon discover the authenticity of Ann Romney that Belmont has known for years, according to Politico as the Romney campaign begins using Ann as the most prominent and effective surrogote for her husband on the campaign trail.
And her appeal to women and how she softens her husband's somewhat stiff persona makes her the Romney that Democrats rear most, according to Politico.
