Tune it to CNN's documentary "Romney Revealed: Family, Faith and the Road to Power," with Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger, debuting Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET on CNN.
The presumptive GOP presidential nominee and his wife, Ann, were in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, on Sunday, preparing for their convention speeches. The couple entered Brewster Academy, a local preparatory school, with chief campaign strategist Stuart Stevens to work on their remarks.
Due to weather conditions related to Isaac, convention officials decided to postpone the event by a day, starting on Tuesday instead of Monday.
Asked if he was concerned about the GOP gathering, Romney said, "It'll be a great convention."
Ann Romney was originally scheduled to speak Monday - headlining the first day of the convention and creating a bookend effect with her husband speaking on Thursday. But the broadcast networks decided not to carry the first night of the convention, forcing the Romney campaign to scramble and shift Ann Romney's time slot Tuesday night. The move ensures a larger audience for her primetime speech.
While officials canceled the first day of the convention, officials folded most of Monday's speeches into the remainder of the week's schedule, which was released Sunday night.
As they were leaving the prep school Sunday night, reporters asked Romney about his speech.
Pointing to Ann, the former Massachusetts said: "She's great."
"Yours isn't great?" a reporter asked.
Laughing, Romney responded: "I just compliment my wife's."
Ann Romney, walking to a car with her husband, held an iPad in one hand and smiled as she lifted up some pieces of computer paper with typing on them, according to pool reports.
Romney, meanwhile, gave a thumbs up.
