He is definitely trying to steal New Hampshire, where Mitt Romney is well liked because he governed the state next door and has a house there. Ann Romney may not like politics but she likes the guy she married at 20 an awful lot. And she’d like to let us know he is not a one dimensional cut out of a Presidential candidate but a goofy, sweet, fun date after all these years. He sings to her on horseback, was a doting caregiver when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and laps up peanut butter like a 12 year old boy. The timing of Ann Romney’s appearance on the campaign trail is no accident. It’s an effort to counteract Newt Gingrich’s sudden rise in the polls. Because while Newt Gingrich is funny, creative and very smart, he isn’t a role model for marriage. And women voters care about those things. So do evangelicals.
I have pulled together a bunch of recent articles that you might want to read to learn more about Gingrich. Romney and the race for the front of the Republican field.
