ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said he has finished writing his victory speech on Tuesday (November 6). Speaking to reporters while on a plane from Pittsburgh to Boston, Romney said he was proud of the campaign his team had run. "I am very pleased. I feel like we put it all on the field. We left nothing in the locker room. We fought to the very end and I think that's why we'll be successful," he said. He also said that he had finished his victory speech -- and not yet written a possible concession speech. "I just finished writing a victory speech. It's about 1,118 words. And, I'm sure it'll change before I'm finished because I haven't passed it around to my family and friends and advisers to get their reaction. But I've only written one speech at this point," Romney said. Romney also spoke wistfully of his parents and his family.
