TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The people who will introduce Mitt Romney at tonight's Republican National Convention include members of the Mormon church, former business associates and past Olympic athletes.
Romney is expected to give Americans a different view of himself than he's presented before -- including discussion of his Mormon faith. He's also expected to focus on what he'll describe as the failures of President Barack Obama to revive the economy.
Hinting at the themes in a morning fundraising appeal emailed to supporters, Romney says, "we believe in America, even though the last four years have been full of difficulties and disappointments, doubt and despair."
Romney has spent part of the day with extended family -- about 120 people, he guesses -- while also continuing the search for campaign cash in two meetings with donors.
