Governor Mitt Romney is currently the Governor of Massachusetts, and is running for President of the United States of America. Governor Romney is 59 years old, and is married to Ann Romney, and has been for 37 years. Together the couple has five sons, and nine grandchildren. Mitt grew up just outside Detroit in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and is the son of George Romney who was the 43rd Governor of Michigan.

In the 90's, Governor Romney returned to Bain & Co. as CEO, and rescued it from a huge fall, and reorganized company. Less than a year later, Romney had turned the company around, and saved millions of jobs again. Because of Romney's success in business, He was head of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Games Organizing Committee. He was elected Governor of Massachusetts in 2002, and helped bring the state out of financial crisis without increasing taxes or debt. Again, as governor, Romney helped save jobs, and helped undo much damage.

Today Romney is running for president as a conservative republican. I believe that his strongest point to his campaign is his ability to fix economic problems. His financial work in his business, his experience in the Olympics, and his term as Governor has made his economic skills very strong. He believes in keeping our jobs...
