Former Mass. Governor Mitt Romney officially accepted the nomination for the Republican presidential candidate for the 2012 election cycle Thursday night. His speech, which lasted approximately 40 minutes, was preceded by introductions by actor Clint Eastwood and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). It focused mainly on Romney’s personal convictions, with several digs at President Barack Obama’s performance as president since 2008, in addition to Romney’s goals if elected president.
Election Day is 66 days away. The latest Gallup poll has Obama leading by just one point ahead of Romney.
