Riding the wave of success from her keynote Republican National Convention speech, Ann Romney on Wednesday encouraged Hispanic voters to support her husband and get past the “biases … from the Democratic machine.”

“I spoke to women last night, and I wanted women to understand how important this election is for their children, but as I was sitting backstage listening, I thought, it’s also very important that the Latino community recognize how important this election is for them,” Romney said at the Latino Coalition luncheon on Wednesday, ABC News reports. “And they are mistaken if they think they are going to be better off with Barack Obama as their president.

“There really is only one way for prosperity, for small business, and that is, this is the simplest way I can say this: If Mitt Romney wins, America wins,” Romney said.

She said her “importance in speaking out is making sure that those coalitions,” referring to women and Hispanic voters, “that would naturally be voting for another party wake up and say, ‘You’d better really look at the issues this time,’ ” ABC News reports.

“You’d better really look at your future and figure out who’s going to be the guy that’s going to make it better for you and your children – and there is only one answer,” Romney said.

She added, according to ABC News: “It really is a message that would resonate well if they could just get past some of their biases that have been there from the Democratic machines that have made us look like we don’t care about this community. And that is not true. We very much care about you and your families and the opportunities that are there for you and your families.”

Stressing her immigrant roots, mentioning her Welsh coal miner grandfather, Romney added, “I know what it’s like to be the daughter of immigrants.”

She also praised the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Luce Fortuno, who introduced her on Tuesday night, calling them “kindred spirits.”

“What she and her husband are doing on that little island is quite remarkable. You should be so proud,” Romney said.
