Over the next seventy plus days Virginia governor Bob McDonnell working hard.
For governor Romney.
Well first off governor -- six times congressman Ryan now VP nominee has been in Virginia.

A small ball campaign that strategy.

-- Baines experience for Mitt Romney I think sheriff who knows how to create jobs in the private sector and as you just pointed out it knows how to make.
Decisions we've got Washington that's basically at a stand still can't get things done.
The president's been a bystander.
Not a strong leader and I think people are getting getting a great sense of that and no no plan to get -- -- of the debt and get America back to work so.

Start to focus of this convention.
I think will be a great chance to have Mitt Romney and de Paul Ryan and the rest of the team introduced themselves to.
The casual voter the -- voters -- say what's going on what those Republicans -- watch they'll watch.
And I think they'll say a Mitt Romney different that what the left is very portraying -- he's warm he's our grandfather he's Smart he's got a specific plan.
