Romney Says He Would Decline Salary As President

Republican Mitt Romney, conceding that his business career helped him make more money than he expected, said Tuesday he would likely decline a salary as president and instead donate the money _ and more _ to charity.

During a question-and-answer session with Liberty Mutual employees, Romney said that despite his personal wealth _ his assets likely will total $190 million to $250 million _ he has committed himself to public service, from head of the 2002 Winter Olympics to one-term governor of Massachusetts.
