GOP’s final night is about telling Romney’s story

TAMPA, FL (AP) — When Mitt Romney addresses the Republican convention Thursday night, he’ll speak from a stage that puts him a little bit closer to the crowd inside the convention hall. His campaign hopes the evening ends with Americans feeling a little bit closer to the Republican presidential candidate, too.

The final night of the convention in Tampa, FL, will be devoted to telling Romney’s story.

It’s orchestrated to introduce a sometimes distant politician as the candidate best able to shoulder the country’s economic burdens. His highly anticipated speech will be both personal and political, and include new and unfamiliar stories.

He’s expected to discuss his Mormon faith, including time he spent as a church leader in Boston.

Advisers say the speech also will provide a “clear vision” of a Romney presidency.
