Ann Romney: 'We Better Unzip Him And Let The Real Mitt Romney Out'

Posted: Updated:

Ann Romney, asked in an interview Monday if she has to defend her husband against charges that he is too "stiff," responded, "we better unzip him and let the real Mitt Romney out because he is not!"

"You know, it is so funny to me that that is the perception out there. Because he is funny, he is engaging, he is witty," she told Baltimore's WBAL, according to ABC News. "He is always playing jokes. When I met him as a teenager, he was the life of the party. And yet, he is also a very serious person and an accomplished person. And I think a lot of times, people see him in the debate setting."

Maryland holds its Republican primary Tuesday. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, has a huge lead in the polls over former Sen. Rick Santorum.

Ann Romney is generally considered one of her husband's best assets, humanizing the sometimes awkward presidential candidate.
