. you know, george romney was a successful car executive and governor and ran for president, and so he branched out. it will be a bit of sort of romney's journey to try to find his own way in finding a way to create economic security for his own family and learn about business. so it will give us a slightly different window. he'll be critical of the president but he will also say some things that you might find a bit surprising in talking about how the president got to where romney thinks he is in terms of a governor earning philosophy. this is an important opportunity for romney talking about the numbers, looking to be comfortably up in wisconsin at a time when so many in the state are focused on the recall of the governor and the more local politics that have really been boiling here. we've been watching those ads that you mentioned on tv. they, of course, are coming during every commercial break. so people are really saturated not only with the rain outside, but with the political atmosphere of the moment. chris? >> i certainly get a lot of e-mails from the scott walker pro and con

that was suspect and that the prosecution said was concealed was money that george zimmerman was gaining or gathering on a website that he had set up with a pay pal account soliciting donations to help him on his defense. that money was then transferred and the forensic accountant, who was called by the defense, admitted to the prosecution that when the money was transferred from george zimmerman from his wife to his sister, to his mother back to an account as it was bouncing around all just under that required reporting rule of $10,000, it suggested that he was trying to hide the money. now, at issue here is whether george zimmerman will get another bond or not. in florida, bond is not suppod to be something that is punitive. you are not supposed to be kept in jail while you're awaiting charges. bond is supposed to beç set at reasonable amount of money to bring you back to court when you actually have your trial. so the judge is considering the evidence now of what happened with that $150,000, what happened to the 135,000 plus dollars, adding it all up and likely will return a
