With nomination clinched, Romney seeks working-class connection

Tampa, Florida (CNN) - Mitt Romney officially clinched the GOP presidential nomination, then watched his wife deliver a political broadside with a personal touch at the Republican National Convention that seeks to portray the multimillionaire former businessman as a champion of working-class Americans who struggle under the policies of President Barack Obama.

The storm-delayed convention continues Wednesday with Romney's running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice taking the stage to make their case for why the GOP ticket can do better if elected in November.

    I don't think that he is going to get it. He has led a life that has too much comfort. We never heard about their struggles to make ends meet. Nor have I heard of the time where he worked a job that was minimum wage. That might make a difference.
