Ashleigh got to be a greeter recently for Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney after one of his events here in Ohio.
It was very exciting as we were waiting on the tarmac right in front of the plane. Night was falling when we saw the lights on the police cars in the distance. Next came the roar of the motorcycles as the motorcade pulled in and the bus parked right in front of us. It took a few minutes for the doors to open as the personnel got into place.
When the door opened Mitt Romney came out and went right up to Ash and said Ashleigh thanks a lot for coming out to see him. He was very nice and very genuine. He also signed a bumper sticker for Ashleigh and others for her brothers.
It was windy and had started to rain and Gov. Romney apologized to Ashleigh for her having to wait out in the bad weather but she didn’t seem to mind as she was very excited. Luckily it was very warm and we had her bundled up well. After Gov. Romney boarded the plane, Senator Portman came over and spoke with us as well. He too is very nice and very down to earth.
Thanks to everyone for pulling this together for Ashleigh, we really appreciate it
