Gov. Mitt Romney hinted today during a Florida town hall at what his wife Ann’s cause might be should she become First Lady next year.
Responding to a comment by an elderly lady who told Romney that she thinks Ann would make a “wonderful First Lady,” Romney said. “I agree with you, she’d make a wonderful First Lady and I’d be proud of her being in that position.”
“I know she cares very deeply about kids in trouble,” said Romney. “And if she were the First Lady, she’d spend a lot of her time helping kids understand that before they have kids you ought to get married and that husbands and wives make a good team in raising a child.”
Ann has recently been out stumping for her husband more frequently than she had been. She made several stops in South Carolina last week and is in Iowa for three days this week campaigning.
Romney also said during today’s event that it was Ann’s idea for him to run again and that his first reaction had been, “You gotta be kidding me.”
