RENO, Nev. (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has begun telling Americans the Nov. 6 election comes down to which candidate would be better for their families. He's trying to personalize the choice voters are making between him and President Barack Obama.
Campaigning in Nevada, Romney said the election isn't just about big ideas but also is about "your family."
He described tough situations facing seniors, families with children and the unemployed. At one point, Romney asked audience members to raise their hands to say if they experienced situations he had just outlined.
The remarks were a departure from Romney's typical campaign speeches, which usually have a broader focus.
After the speech, Romney headed for his second campaign stop of the day, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
