Before Ann And Mitt, Lenore And George

In this video, cut from a 1962 Romney for Governor informercial, Lenore Romney talks about why her husband would be a good Governor of Michigan. Interestingly, Lenore Romney sounds very similar to how Ann Romney described Mitt Romney in her convention speech last week — though Lenore also describes George as "a refugee from Mexico. He was on relief - welfare relief - for the first years of his life."
