Tagg Stumps for Mitt in High Country PDF Print

He looks like his dad, sounds like his dad, and carries his dad’s message. Yesterday, it was Tagg Romney who made a couple of High Country stops on behalf of his presidentially-leaning dad, meeting with Christmas tree farmers in Ashe, then Young Republicans from ASU —and a number of not-so-young republicans from around the region were there.  The breakfast event at Dan’l Boone Inn saw a Tagg Romney comfortable with the message of family and public service from the greater Romney clan, saying in a family vote, only he, Tagg, and his mother voted for Mitt to try again for the White House. Tagg said it was his mother that made the final point that put Mitt Romney back in the race after even Mitt voted no. “She said, ‘Forget about whether you can win or not—if you win, can you fix the problems our country’s got right now?’ And he looked and said, ‘yeah, I can, I can fix them.  It’s not too late.’ Her next question was, ‘well, do you love your grandchildren?’ ‘Well yes, of course I love my grandchildren.’ And she said, ‘well, you have no choice.’” Tagg Romney could not say whether the High Country will see his dad on any campaign visits, but he said his dad will certainly be in the state a number of times over the next 39 days.
