MIAMI, Fla -- Mitt Romney's campaign produced a 10-minute documentary film about the candidate that forced even liberal Democrats, when it was shown at the Republican National Convention, to admit that it was a moving portrayal of Romney's life and values.
The problem is not very many people have seen the video, and the Romney campaign appears to have made little effort to change that. Romney revealed to donors in Atlanta on Wednesday that he himself had not seen the entire thing until it was shown before his remarks at a fundraiser.
Romney said the footage of his deceased father, former Michigan Gov. George Romney, "brought a tear to my eye."
"It touched my heart,” Romney said.
But the Romney campaign has done little to highlight the film. It's not featured on the campaign's website or YouTube page. It has a decent number of views on YouTube -- 145,000 as of Thursday morning -- but there are 25 other Romney campaign videos that have been seen more times, including a few that have over 1 million views. To find it online takes far more effort than it should.
