Ann Romney's Speech to Showcase Mitt's Softer Side

Ad Feedback

The Republican National Convention is getting underway Tuesday after being delayed by the threat of Tropical Storm Isaac.

Events officially kicked off with a prayer for storm victims and for Americans still endangered by it.

On the agenda for today: speeches from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as well as from Mitt Romney's wife, Ann.

Ann Romney is taking the stage in an effort to show voters a different side of her husband. Mitt and Ann Romney were in New Hampshire practicing their upcoming speeches Sunday.

"I like my speech. I really like Ann's speech," Mitt told reporters.

The five Romney sons are also working to help voters connect with their father on a personal level.

"He gets emotional if you ask him about his dad, he'll get emotional. You ask him about my mom, he'll get emotional. He gets emotional when he talks about God and Christ," Tagg Romney said of his dad.

Polls show voters believe President Obama is more likeable than Romney. And a new ABC News poll shows 58 percent of Americans believe Romney favors the wealthy over the middle class.

The campaign is hoping Ann will help convince voters tonight that her husband cares about all of their needs.
