Ann Romney Visits Omaha For Fundraiser (Canceled Interviews After Controversy Erupted This Week)

Ann Romney, the wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, made an appearance Friday at an Omaha-area fundraiser for her husband.

She had scheduled interviews with The World-Herald and other reporters but canceled after controversy erupted this week over her comments to a public radio station in Iowa about her husband’s Republican critics.

She said the critics from within Romney’s party needed to “stop it,” that campaigning was hard and that they were welcome to run if they thought they could do better.

She appeared at the luncheon, $250-per-plate fundraiser at the Embassy Suites and La Vista Conference Center. The event was closed to reporters.
