(YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio) — On the eve of Super Tuesday, Mitt Romney introduced one of his most powerful weapons on the campaign trail.
“I’ll introduce to you the heavyweight champion of my life. I don’t mean weight, that didn’t come out right, she’s just a great fighter is what I mean,” Romney said with a smile.
Taking the stage, Ann Romney played off her husband’s introduction. “Well, if this goes on much longer I will be the heavyweight champion.” Speaking of her clothes, “Things are getting a little tight. This is what happens when you’re on the campaign trail… We’ve been on this for a long time now and you don’t always get to eat what you’d like or exercise like you like,” Mrs. Romney said.
While several polls show Romney with new momentum in the crucial state of Ohio leading into Super Tuesday, some national polling shows the primary battle is chipping away at Romney’s favorability among independents and Republicans in the country as a whole.
Hoping to get the support of voters in Ohio and other states Tuesday, Romney told the crowd gathered inside a Youngstown factory, “I believe if I do, I’ll get the nomination. And then we can start organizing our effort to make sure that we replace President Obama.”
