Ann Romney: People got to see husband as she does

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Ann Romney says she's glad people watching the first presidential debate have finally been able to see her husband, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, as she does: "A good and decent person."

Speaking Sunday before she introduced her husband, Mrs. Romney says people got to see the former Massachusetts governor as someone who cares for others — and that Americans will be able to see him display that quality again when he gets people back to work.

The campaign wants to soften Romney's image in the final weeks of the campaign and maintain his focus on the middle class.

At the same event, Romney promised he would "not raise taxes on middle class families!"

Romney's campaign said that 12,000 people attended the event, including 3,000 in an overflow area.
