Romney highlights long-lasting marriage in new TV ad

 

Mitt Romney highlighted his 42-year marriage and family life in a new ad released Wednesday.

The 30-second spot, which will air in both Iowa and New Hampshire, highlights the former Massachusetts governor's answer at a Nov. 9 debate, where he described himself as "a man of steadiness and constancy." His words play over a montage of Romney home videos and images of Ann Romney.

If I'm President of the United States, I will be true to my family, my faith and our country and I will never apologize for the United States of America.

Having fallen behind recently in the polls, Romney's campaign is highlighting his marriage and family background in contrast to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who has been married three times.
