Craig Romney on Why Mitt Is a Great Father

Craig Romney said his campaign role is to explain what drives his father and what he is like as a person. "It's fun, because I just get to meet people all over the country and I get to tell stories about my dad. So I'm having a great time," he told NBC 6 South Florida's Jackie Nespral.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Mitt Romney's son Craig attended a rally at Florida International University in Miami Friday.

About 200 people gathered at the "Student Victory Rally" at FIU's College of Law atrium.

"My dad was a forum in Miami and a student asked him a quetion and said, 'I just graduated. I have all this debt. What are you gonna do for me?' I think she expected him to say we'll fogive your debt, give you another loan. But he said 'I'm not gonna give you any more money. That's not gonna help you. What I'm gonna do is help you find a job," Romney said.

Student Claudia Navarro said she's voting for Romney.

"I happen to be an Independent but I'm voting for Romney because I think we deserve some change in 2012. It's been four years. So, change is good," she said.

Craig Romney was in South Florida Thursday night, attending a vice presidential debate watch party at an Irish pub in Coral Gables with Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart.

Earlier in the day, Mitt Romney's wife Ann visited sick children at the Chris Evert Children's Hospital in Fort Lauderdale.

President Barack Obama was also in South Florida Thursday for a grassroots event at the University of Miami and a fundraiser at the JW Marriott Marquis.

The Florida blitz came as a new Miami Herald/Tampa Bay Times poll shows Romney with a large lead over Obama, largely thanks to the GOP challenger's performance in last week's presidential debate. The poll shows Romney with a 51-44 lead over Obama in Florida, a crucial swing state in the 2012 election.
