Mitt Romney (R), Candidate for President: "For me, the new American dream that we have to build is a dream with strong families, great schools, health care people know they can afford have with them throughout their life. A safe and prosperous nation."
Among those helping with today's telethon was Utah's Lieutenant Governor Gary Herbert.
