Romney Week in Review
July 6, 2007

This week, Governor Mitt Romney celebrated Independence Day with a five-day swing through Iowa.

Keeping a quick pace, he attended eight "Ask Mitt Anything" events, traveled to 12 Iowa counties, and walked in four Fourth of July parades. Click here to scroll through five new photo albums of the Governor's trip.

On Saturday, Governor Romney spoke to the Iowa Christian Alliance and Iowans for Tax Relief Presidential Forum. You can watch excerpts of the Governor's rousing Des Moines speech by clicking the link below:

On Monday, as Governor and Mrs. Romney traveled to Pella, Iowa, they were interviewed by Hannah Storm of the CBS Early Show. Click here to watch her report on Ann Romney's role in the campaign.

On Tuesday, Romney for President announced that it will report $20.5 million in total receipts for the second fundraising quarter, ending June 30, 2007, including $14 million in primary contributions. Just as important, more than 80,000 Americans have contributed to the campaign -- a 150% increase in supporters from the first quarter! This impressive display is clearly indicative of Governor Romney's growing network of grassroots support. Thanks so much for all of your assistance and help keep the momentum going by growing Team Mitt even further!

Also this Tuesday, at an "Ask Mitt Anything" in Creston, Iowa, Governor Romney detailed his private sector experience and contrasted himself with the Democrat presidential contenders, declaring "the Presidency is not an internship."

Finally, on Wednesday, during one of his Independence Day parades, Governor Romney met up with his son Josh in Clear Lake, Iowa, who's more than halfway through visiting all of Iowa's 99 counties.
