With general elections coming up soon, now is a great time to talk with your friends and acquaintances about Mitt Romney. The dialog could go something like this:

"...yeah, candidate X has a lot of ground to make up if they are going to have a chance here in Washington State. Hey, speaking of politics, have you heard of Mitt Romney?"

"The name sounds familiar. Was he a political leader in Michigan?"

"That would be his dad George Romney. He was governor in Michigan from '63 to '69. Mitt Romney is George's son. Mitt is currently the governor of Massachusetts. He's going to run for president in 2008. As governor, he was able to get Massachusetts a universal health care plan. He helped turn around the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake. He's also been a successful businessman for a company called Bain Capital which helped Staples and Domino's in their early years. He's very smart, well-spoken, and is able to get people to work together. It would take someone like that to be elected as a Republican governor in Massachusetts - one of the most liberal states in the country."

"Hmm. I'll have to find out more about him."

"Here's a business card with some websites about Mitt Romney if you'd like to read up more about him."

"Great. Thanks.
