Baking Bread with Ann Romney



AnnromneyAnn Romney, wife of presidential candidate and former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney spent Tuesday morning in St. Petersburg, her last of a four-day campaign tour in Florida.

On Monday, she was the star of a Jacksonville fundraiser and she also visited Romney supporters phone- banking in Tampa.

This morning, Ann Romney spent more than an hour talking with a crowd of about 30 St. Pete neighbors, showing them how to prepare a family recipe for "monkey" bread while giving a bit of family history. She brought tears to some in the crowd as she detailed her struggles with Multiple Sclerosis and raising five kids and 10 grandkids. She has an 11th on the way, scheduled to be born Wednesday in San Diego. The St. Pete visit was her last before she heads home to start making Thanksgiving dinner with Mitt Romney. She returns to the campaign trail on Friday.
