NASHUA, NH -- A crew of allies from south of the border joined Mitt Romney on the campaign trail today.
Among those at an Ask Mitt Anything here today were Romney's former lieutenant governor, Kerry Healey; Ron Kaufman, the state GOP's national committeeman and a top Romney adviser; state Representative Paul K. Frost, a Republican from Auburn; House Minority Leader Brad Jones and Barbara Anderson of Citizens for Limited Taxation.
The Massachusetts crew proved useful in helping Romney use the state that elected him governor as a foil for his conservative platform. Romney declared that if she moved to New Hampshire -- which has no sales, income or capital gains tax -- Anderson might "just die and go to heaven."
Romney also introduced Jones to the crowd.
"Can you imagine being a Republican in the State House of Massachusetts?" he said, as the crowd laughed. "He's my hero; he's the best."
