The Trail: 2012 Presidential News from the Field / Campaign 2012

Ann Romney Had Pre-Super Tuesday Health 'Scare'

April 26, 2012

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.
