Hoping to connect with everyday people, Ann Romney worked to describe an early life with her husband that was a struggle.
"We got married and moved into a basement apartment," she said. "Our desk was a
dining room table was an ironing board propped up in a kitchen."
Ann Romney said her husband worked hard and built himself into a successful businessperson. He grew into a selfless, generous person, she insisted.
"Mitt doesn't like to talk about how he helps others because he sees it as a privilege not a political talking point," she said.
