Just got a confirmation that I will be interviewing Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island on Saturday, September 24. Ann and Mitt Romney (don’t think he needs an introduction!) will be on the island for the Biennial Republican Leadership Conference. Ann and I will be talking about the couple’s Michigan ties—both she and her husband are from Michigan. (Those of us of a certain age remember when Mitt’s father, George Romney, was Michigan’s governor.)
I’ve been reading up on Ann and learned that she is a strong and intelligent woman who has battled breast cancer and MS—a disease she keeps under control with a combination of traditional and alternative medicine, therapy that includes horseback riding and a dynamite attitude.
Our conversation promises to be fascinating. Stay tuned to MyNorth.com for the interview, as well as my blogs about the conference.
