MILWAUKEE — Ann Romney, the wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, rallied supporters at Marquette University on Thursday, September 20th.
Wisconsin’s First Lady Tonette Walker introduced Romney at the lunchtime rally which appeared to target women voters. Ann Romney made a point of mentioning several of her husband’s cabinet and senior staff from Massachusetts, many of whom are women, were on hand for the rally.
Mrs. Romney told supporters “we are reaching a fiscal cliff” and her husband, Mitt and Paul Ryan are the people to help solve the nation’s problems. She talked about the disparity and hardship women in particular have had to endure over the last four years. She insisted Mitt will not fail in his quest to right the nation’s ship.
Marquette University’s College Republicans helped organize the Romney rally.
“We’re excited to have Ann Romney here. This is a really great launching point for students to hear the conservative message to hear what’s going on in Wisconsin,” Stephanie Marecki with Marquette College Republicans said.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's wife is expected to visit Milwaukee later this week.
Ann Romney is set to appear at a GOP rally Thursday at Marquette University. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. The event is slated to begin two hours later.
The visit underscores again how Wisconsin has become a key battleground state in the November election. Her husband's running mate, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, hails from Janesville and held a campaign event near Green Bay last week. Vice President Joe Biden has visited the state twice in the last month.
