MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Ann Romney is playing an enhanced role in her husband's presidential campaign.
She's seen as a good balance for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who sometimes struggles to connect with average voters.
The campaign says Ann Romney soon will make new rounds of public appearances, media interviews and discuss her health problems and her family's rags-to-riches story.
The 62-year-old grandmother of 16 has multiple sclerosis and recently battled breast cancer.
The Romneys have been married for 42 years.
