Chris and Jane Horton met while working for a politician in New York City.
He talked her into moving back to his home state before leaving for Afghanistan.
Specialist Horton was ambushed and killed about a year ago.
Jane tells KRMG, "Romney wears Chris' Killed in Action bracelet and he wore it in the last debate."
She says Chris was one of the main volunteers from Oklahoma for Romney’s 2008 run for president.
This time around, the fallen soldier is at the heart of his campaign.
"Chris would just be absolutely thrilled if he knew. It's just amazing.”
Now, Jane is carrying on her husband’s wish of working to get Romney in office.
She is on a non-partisan bus tour to encourage more voters to support Romney.
Romney says, “Her reaction is not to become depressed and despondent but actually go to work and try and help other families that have lost loved ones in conflict.”
Jane says it's more than the memory of her husband that motivates her.
Listen to Jane Horton's entire interview.
“It’s more because I think he is what our country needs and I am very unhappy with the current president.”
She says both the military and the national budgets are issues that need addressed.
“Especially because Chris died and gave his life to his country, now I’m more passionate about it than ever and it really upsets me when I see our freedoms taken away, the freedom that Chris gave his life for.”
