At a private fundraiser in Florida on Sunday, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney offered an unusual glimpse at his policy plans — including the possibility that he might eliminate an agency his father led.
His wife, Ann Romney, also spoke candidly about the flap over stay-at-home moms last week as a campaign boost.
“I’m going to take a lot of departments in Washington, and agencies, and combine them. Some eliminate, but I’m probably not going to lay out just exactly which ones are going to go,” Romney told the audience. His words were heard by reporters on a sidewalk outside the event. “Things like Housing and Urban Development, which my dad was head of, that might not be around later.”
