Our take: Wife of Mitt Romney, Ann Romney casts herself as someone who has defied others’ expectations, not endeavored to fulfill them. This is especially true with her strong will and support for her husband's presidential candidacy.
WASHINGTON — Years before Mitt Romney ever ran in his first political race, his wife, Ann, beat him to public office.
In 1977, Mrs. Romney, at 27, campaigned for town meeting representative in Belmont, Mass., where the young couple lived. She studied up on local issues and went around town talking to residents. She even printed placards — complete with a photograph of herself above a list of platform positions — that she handed out door to door and on street corners.
