Country has now seen the real Romney, son tells Valley crowd tonight


Craig Romney, 31, the youngest son of presidential candidate Mitt Romney, says he had concerns when his father said in 2010 he was thinking about running for president a second time.

Romney’s father sat down with the family and asked whether they thought he should run.

“My biggest concern was that people wouldn’t see him for who he truly is, that he would be defined simply by his opponent,” the younger Romney said Friday evening at the Mahoning County Republican Headquarters on Boardman Canfield Road.

“Fortunately, Wednesday night, people got the chance to see who this man truly is,” he said of the recent debate.

“At the convention in Tampa, people saw my mom did such a great job saying regardless of whether you agree with his policies, at least know that you can trust my husband.

“So I think people have begun to see that, and that’s a great relief to me,” he told the crowd of about 100.
