Transcript for Ann Romney's Republican National Convention Speech
May be a day late because of hurricane isaac, but ann romney and chris christie really fired up the crowd here last night. Did they do enough to sell mitt romney and the gop for all of the voters deciding around the country? That's "your voice, your vote." Abc's david muir joining me right now. A very small focus group. But the mitt romney family here last night. So thrilled. They were wiping away tears long after their mother was done speaking. I spoke with a senior strategist with the governor and his wife. And he said he had never seen governor romney as nervous as he was as that moment his wife was called out on the stage. She came out and made the case. And as it says in the morning papers, she told the american people to get to know him. It was clear who she was making that pitch to. It was ann romney's moment. The biggest speech of her life. And the opportunity for this campaign to reach out to women. And she took advantage of it. It's the moms of this nation, single, married, widowed, who really hold this country together. We're the mothers. We're the wives. We're the grandmothers. We're the big sisters. We're the little sisters. And we are the daughters. You know, it's true, don't you? Reporter: Arguing, it's the women in american families who always work a little bit harder. And the working moms, who love their jobs, but would like to work just a little less to spend more time with the kids. Reporter: At one point, simply offering this. I love you, women. Reporter: She spoke of a tougher economy for families. And of tough solutions ahead. We're too smart to know they're not easy answers. But we're not dumb enough to think there aren't better answers. Reporter: And she spoke of her marriage. She said it is hardly, as some describe, storybook. The storybooks never have chapters called m.S. Or breast cancer. A storybook marriage? Not at all. What mitt romney and I have is a real marriage. Reporter: The five boys in the crowd, wiping away tears. And from behind the stage, a nervous husband, proudly emerges for a kiss. And for ann romney on the personal side, to the man who would pounce. christie, taking on the president. Mr. President, real leaders don't follow polls. Reporter: But it seemed that chris christie spent more time speaking of himself. I believe. I say. When I came into office. Reporter: It would be 17 minutes before he would mention the man running for president. We have a nominee who will tell us the truth and lead with conviction. And now, he has a running mate to do the same. And we have governor romney and congressman paul ryan. We need to make them the next president and vice president of the united states. Reporter: Of course, chris christie and ann romney on the stage here last night. Tonight, it is paul ryan's turn. Ann romney will try to take the star power down the road in florida. She has several events lined up here today.
