Scores of Relatives Aid Romney
AMES, Iowa, Aug. 10 — They have driven here from California, Ohio, Canada or Texas, while others have flown from Michigan, Utah or Florida. There are aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins, in-laws, nieces, nephews and grandchildren.
At last count, 96 members of the Romney clan, a veritable army, have arrived here over the last few days to help out at Saturday’s Republican straw poll, bolstering what is already a huge ground operation for the event that far outstrips the efforts of any other campaign.
Leading the shock troops will be Mr. Romney’s five adult sons, who have come to occupy an increasingly prominent place in their father’s campaign, giving speeches, holding fund-raisers, blogging and even weighing in on strategy, all the while helping their father paint a not-so-subtle contrast to some of his leading Republican rivals.
Why the hell didn't he just have his family move to Iowa. He could have rigged it that way.
On another note, I found a pic of the family campaigning.
