In the days leading up to the big Super Tuesday contests that helped Mitt Romney seal the GOP nomination, his wife, Ann, began suffering symptoms of multiple sclerosis, a disease she’s battled since the 1990’s. In her words, "I had a little bit of a scare."
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday, Ann Romney said that she was feeling “quite fatigued, and I knew I couldn't quit. I didn't tell anybody I was tired.”
She said she kept campaigning, but ended up paying for it. "You know, what happens with me is that I start to almost lose my words. I almost can't think. I can't get my words out. I start to stumble a little bit and so those things were happening and I thought, 'Uh oh, big trouble.'"
Entertainment Tonight will air a second part to the interview on Thursday night explaining how she recovered from her scare.
