Who is Mitt Romney?

Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts, is the Republican presidential nominee for the 2012 election. Romney will face President Barack Obama at the polls in November, and if he is elected, Romney will be the first Mormon president in U.S. history.

Romney's father was the former governor of Michigan, where Romney was born in 1947, and raised. Like his father and grandfather before him, Romney is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon). Romney attended Brigham Young University, where he received a bachelor's degree in English in 1971. He went on to Harvard University, where he earned a master's degree in business and a law degree in 1975.

Romney married Ann Davies in 1969, whom he had known in elementary school. She converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1966, and she also attended Brigham Young University, where she earned a bachelor of arts in French. A stay-at-home mother, Ann raised the family's five boys, who were born between 1970 and 1981. In 1998, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

One of Romney's key contributions during his political career is the signing into law the Massachusetts health care reform legislation, which he enacted while governor of Massachusetts in 2006. Romney's signing of the law, which requires that nearly every resident of Massachusetts obtain a minimum level of health care insurance coverage, has been a point of tension among the Republican base, as there are parallels between the law and the health care reform law passed by President Obama in 2010. To learn more about Romney, see the resources below.
