Romney vows to revive hope for America with all his energy, soul

< Previous Page

Four years ago, Romney couldn’t persuade Republican voters of his own message, losing primary after primary.

Some of those former rivals spoke glowingly about Romney while others cheered him on from the audience.

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who proved to be one of Romney’s toughest challengers, sung his praises this week in Florida.

"A vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan," Santorum said, "will put our country back in the hands of leaders who understand what America can and, for the sake of our children, must be to keep the dream alive."
