Romney to NAACP: Voting GOP good for your families
Republican Mitt Romney will tell black voters during a speech to the NAACP that backing him for president is in the best interest of their families.
The presumptive GOP nominee on Wednesday will tell the civil rights organization's annual convention in Houston that his economic plans will lift people out of poverty and help keep people from becoming poor.
Excerpts of Romney's speech released by his campaign show he's also expected to highlight the fact that the economy is worse for African Americans under the nation's first black president than it is for the country at large.
Romney also will focus on education reform and highlight his plan to allow poorer students to choose where to go to school.
