Romney Turns to Turnaround Pitch
By Michael D. Shear
MANCHESTER, N.H. -- One day before the New Hampshire primary, Mitt Romney will make a final, televised appeal to voters that he is the candidate best suited to bring change to Washington.
In the two-minute television ad, which will run on Manchester and Boston television stations, entitled "Tomorrow," Romney paints Washington as a broken place which is in need of fresh faces -- a swipe at his chief rival in New Hampshire, Sen. John McCain.
He says in the ad that America needs a turnaround expert in the White House.
"I'm the only candidate for president who's done that in the real world," he says. "I've done it in business, at the Olympics and as governor. I'm going to bring that real-world turnaround experience with me to Washington."
The ad reinforces a new message for the former governor. After spending months arguing that he is the most conservative candidate in the race, he has now shifted to a message focused almost entirely on change.
