ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. (AP) — The wife of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney accentuated the candidate’s compassionate side at a Pennsylvania rally on the eve of his second debate with President Barack Obama.

Ann Romney told an enthusiastic crowd of several hundred supporters at Elizabethtown College on Monday that Mitt Romney is a charitable man who cares about other people.

She said her husband is prepared and confident heading into Tuesday night’s “town hall” debate between her husband and Obama, the Democratic nominee, at Hofstra University on Long Island in New York.

Her brief appearance came as state Republican leaders urge Romney to return to Pennsylvania and wage a vigorous campaign, not only to win the state’s 20 electoral votes but to bolster other GOP candidates.
