Northern California Republicans Energized Following Convention

Mitt Romney has had trouble connecting with average voters. So this week his campaign attempted to use the party's convention to portray him in a warmer light. And it worked according to northern California Republicans. 
 
Jim Brulte is the former California Senate Republican leader. He says the country finally got to see the man he knows.
 
BRULTE: "Mitt Romney is a wonderful man. He has a great heart, he's caring and giving, but you know when you're viewed through the lens of television it doesn't always translate."  

Now the convention is over and Northern California delegates want to turn the message into action. Catharine Baker says the state's Republicans are planning to do a lot more than just write checks to the Romney Campaign. 

BAKER: "They also make a contribution by engaging other Americans around the country in battleground states about who should be elected because they're electing the president of all of us."  
 
Baker says she's asking volunteers to help Romney anyway they can. 
 
BAKER: "Very technologically savvy campaign so folks can also phone from home, get a tutorial and they can start making phone calls into battleground states. And another way is we're deploying from battleground states, again these are our neighbors for example in Nevada."
 
Now Romney must take the energy from Tampa on the road...to those battleground states...which don't include California.
