Husband worth up to $250M, Mitt Romney's wife says 'I don't even consider myself wealthy'
WASHINGTON (AP) ' Mitt Romney's wife says she doesn't consider herself to be wealthy.
In an interview Monday on Fox News, the Republican presidential front-runner's wife, Ann Romney, was asked about criticism that her husband is out of touch with average Americans. He is worth upwards of $250 million.
Mrs. Romney says her struggle with multiple sclerosis has given her compassion for people who are suffering from M.S., cancer or other diseases.
She says people can be poor of spirit and adds, in her words: "I don't even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing. It can be here today and gone tomorrow."
Mrs. Romney says she measures the riches in her life by her friends and her loved ones.
A Romney spokeswoman says the full interview shows what Mrs. Romney meant.
