According to the description, "It has almost been one year since Mitt
Romney announced his campaign
for president in Stratham, New Hampshire. As he clinches the delegates
needed for the Republican nomination, we look back on this journey to
restore the promise of America."
This rather celebratory video strings together
snippets of Romney speeches accompanied by swelling music. (It
has a bit of the Lucas R. Baiano style, but much toned down).
Some of the
footage from the announcement in Stratham has appeared before.
Most of the footage is Romney campaign-related; there are moderately
few stock scenes, for example an aerial view of a combine harvesting.
