Washington (CNN) - While Mitt and Ann Romney are briefly reunited for the presidential debate, soon she will be again hitting the campaign trail solo stumping for her husband.
She has been primarily campaigning separately from him hoping she can help build up his support among female voters – a key constituency this election.

She recently told CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger the hardest part of campaigning is "being away from my husband a lot. For me, it's being on the road all the time…there's the good and the bad side of running a campaign. But for me, it's difficult never to be home."
While she laments missing family birthdays, "it's all worth it. I mean, it's all – extraordinary experience on top of that. And it's definitely something I believe in with all my heart."
One of her main goals as a key surrogate for the campaign is to try to humanize her husband. Polls show a majority of voters do not believe Mitt Romney understands the concerns of ordinary Americans.
"I believe every single day I'm making a difference, that I'm making people see Mitt in a different light and see him as a person that cares and a person that is competent," she told Borger at a campaign stop in Reno, Nevada.
Asked how tough her husband is when he makes a mistake on the campaign trail, she told CNN "no one's ever gonna run a perfect campaign. And no one's ever gonna be perfect. But you're gonna get up the next morning. And you're gonna just keep fighting. And that's where we are right now," she said. adding "We're just gonna go forward. And that's where Mitt's mental attitude is too, is to just to keep pushing everything forward, to keep thinking about the future, to keep thinking about how important this election is."
The couple talks every night by phone if they are not together. "We hardly do not talk about the campaign, which is interesting. We might briefly, but not really. We don't talk about the campaign," Ann Romney told CNN. She said they talk about the children and ask each other if they have gotten rest.
"We care for one another. We're concerned for one another."
