Born in Detroit, Michigan, Mitt Romney graduated from Harvard and began a long, profitable career in business, working for management consulting and investment firms. After an unsuccessful 1994 run for the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat held by Ted Kennedy, Romney became the CEO of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in 1999. Romney credits himself for making the games, which were troubled by financial shortfalls, security concerns and a bribery scandal, a profitable event. He became the governor of Massachusetts in 2003 and reduced the state’s deficit through tax increases and aggressive spending cuts. He also signed a landmark health care reform law that required all residents to buy health insurance or receive state-assisted insurance. A practicing Mormon who was once a bishop in his church, Romney married his high school girlfriend, Ann. His five sons are active in his campaign.

Did You Know: Romney’s father, George W. Romney, ran for president in 1968, but his mother also had political ambitions. Lenore Romney ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in 1970.

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
