Ann Romney Gets Secret Service Protection

Scott Olson/Getty Images(BOSTON) – Ann Romney has been given her own Secret Service detail, ABC News has learned.

Ann Romney, the wife of presidential candidate Mitt Romney, was first assigned a detail late Friday afternoon, a campaign aide confirmed.

She was first spotted by pool reporters riding in a two-car motorcade near her family’s lakeside home in Wolfeboro, N.H., on Sunday morning.

ABC News was the first to report that Romney was to receive Secret Service protection back in January.

The United States Secret Service did not immediately respond to requests for comments on Mrs. Romney’s new detail, but sources say it is typical for the wife of a presidential candidate to receive their own details around the time of the convention.

The Republican National Convention is set to begin on Tuesday, after being delayed by a day due to incoming Tropical Storm Isaac.
