Josh Romney in Council Bluffs
Council Bluffs, IA - We’re 39-days out from the election, and the Presidential candidates are pulling out all the stops.
The focus once again is on the battleground state of Iowa.
On Friday night Mitt Romney's son stopped in Council Bluffs. Cool, calm and collected Josh Romney spent the night at bar and girl in Council Bluffs.
He was rousing Romney supporters and reaching out to young professionals.
“Young people who are most affected by the unemployment are really passionate about this election, so we're getting them out and making sure they understand what's at stake for their future,” said Josh Romney.
It’s a voting demographic which all but sealed the election four years ago.
The Romney sons have been on the road for months tirelessly campaigning for their father.
"The good thing about having five sons is you can make this a grass roots campaign,” said Romney. “We can be all over the country, so we really are making sure we can focus on talking to people.”
Josh says he's been to every county in Iowa, one of the few people on the trail who can say that.
It’s a unique privilege getting to take the mic and talk about his dad, and what he can do for the country.
"President Obama likes to beat him up for having a couple failures in the private sector, but at least my dad had experience in the private sector you know,” said Romney. “People that actually live in the real world know that everything isn't exactly 100 percent success, President Obama has never had the success in the private sector to know that.”
He’s telling a different side about Mitt Romney.
Not always speaking in political puns, but getting to open up about what he saw as a child.
Life as a Romney son and why he thinks young voters can rally behind his dad.
“I can look from the time I was a very young boy, and I saw what he would do to help other people and serve other people,” said Romney. “There are some amazing stories of people’s lives he's changed.”
