Mitt Romney Family
January 4, 2012 by staff
Mitt Romney Family, Mitt Romney kept it coy with Iowa to the end.Even in his final hours of caucus campaigning Tuesday in and around Des Moines, the former Massachusetts governor made a lower-key play for Iowans’ support compared with four years ago when he finished second to Mike Huckabee. Romney’s Tuesday was dominated by TV interviews rather than personal appearances in front of Iowans.
The candidate pulled off a win in the Iowa GOP caucus, besting Rick Santorum by just eight votes.

Romney took the stage decked out in a literal blue-collar outfit: blue button-down shirt beneath a blue V-neck sweater plus blue jeans. Wife Ann, introduced as “the Mitt Stabilizer,” invoked her “Welsh grandfather, who worked in the coal mines” as a working-class touchstone.
There were to be no bold predictions – just Tagg observing that the campaign might last another two weeks (if his father wins Iowa and New Hampshire) or could drag on for six months.
