Mitt Romney plans personal narrative to reshape image

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney’s campaign hopes to combat months of attacks from Democrats and his GOP primary rivals by emphasizing a highly personalized “counter-
narrative” at next week’s Republican convention that aides said will highlight the presumptive nominee’s charitable work, his religious life, and his job-creation record.

A key element of Romney’s strategy is to have testimony from an array of people he has helped throughout his life, including disadvantaged people he worked with as a Mormon leader in Boston, Olympic athletes familiar from his management of the 2002 Salt Lake City Games, and others who have direct experience with the candidate.
