Ann Romney champions husband at St. Augustine 'Women for Mitt' event | News
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Signs that said "Ann Romney for First Lady" greeted the wife of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney at a "Women for Mitt" event at World Golf Village on Thursday.
Women in Florida politics spoke before Ann Romney came on, including Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll and Attorney General Pam Bondi, who called Ann Romney her husband's "secret weapon." Cindy McCain, the wife of Sen. John McCain, who was the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, also spoke.
Ann Romney showed off two of her grandsons and her daughter-in-law, Mary, to the crowd of about 500 and recalled the conversation she had with her husband about running for president again.
Mrs. Romney said she asked her husband if he thought it was too late to save the country. She said he told her "it's getting too late, but it's not too late."
"Go save America!" she recalled telling her husband.
Ann Romney also talked about former First Lady Barbara Bush, who said that this election was the most important one of her lifetime.
"We're running out of time," Mrs. Romney told the crowd. "We've gotta get it right this time."
