Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney pitched his presidential campaign to Hawaii Republicans today, telling voters that his leadership record and business experience separate him from his Republican challengers and President Barack Obama.
In a telephone conference call ahead of the Hawaii GOP caucuses, Romney, speaking from Florida, also said that he showed as governor that he could find common ground on issues in a predominantly Democratic state.
"This is a critical time. As you know, we've got some other good people running for president, but I'm the only person among the Republican field — well, actually I'm the only person including the Democrat and the Republicans — who has actually run something before," he said.
