Mitt Romney's Daughters-in-Law

Get to Know Mitt Romney's Daughters-in-Law

Taggart "Tagg" Romney is making news for saying he wanted to "take a swing" at the president. It apparently upset Tagg that President Obama called out his dad, Mitt Romney, as dishonest during the second debate. At 42, Tagg is the eldest of Romney's five sons. There's also Josh, Craig — who gave an emotional speech at the RNC partly in fluent Spanish — Matt, and Ben. And while he doesn't have daughters, Mitt Romney does have five daughters-in-law.

Both Mitt Romney and Barack Obama want to win the votes of women this year. The president often talks about the women in his life, including his grandmother, mother, wife, and young daughters. Mitt has had his wife, Ann, by his side for more than four decades, but who are the other women in his life who might influence his position? And I'm not talking about the women in the binders. Let's look into it by finding out what we know about Mitt's five daughters-in-law, who all spoke at a Women For Romney breakfast at the RNC and are all stay-at-home moms.
