Romney: Returning to where it all began

NBC’s Garrett Haake on Romney’s final rally in Manchester, NH: “On a day full of ‘lasts’ for Mitt Romney -- his last campaign event in Florida, and last rallies in Virginia have come and gone -- it was his last rally here in New Hampshire that seemed to move the Republican nominee most, as 12,000 supporters filled an arena to cheer on the man who's presidential run they launched more than 16 months ago. Returning to New Hampshire, where Romney began his presidential campaign last June, and where in January Republican voters handed him a resounding victory in the first in the nation primaries, Romney sounded wistful as he thanked Granite State voters for their support, and asked for their help on Election Day.

“‘You know this is a special moment for Ann and for me because this is where our campaign began,’ Romney said after nearly three minutes of applause died down enough for him to speak. ‘And tomorrow your votes and your work right here in New Hampshire will help me become the next president of the United States!’”
