After the election was over and [John] McCain was the nominee, I made a decision that I would never do it again, she said. You know who your husband is. You know– I know what a good person he is. And oh – the negative – its so hard as a wife to sit there and listen to that.

But when Morales asked why she changed her mind, Mrs. Romney said, We have a reason why were running and its because I believe in my heart that Mitt is going to save America, that economically we are in such difficult times and that he is the person thats going to pull us through this.

The criticism that plagued the Romneys during the 2008 campaign has continued, particularly in regards to their reported $250 million fortune and the issue of their tax returns.

When pressed by Morales, Mrs. Romney stood her ground. We have been very transparent to whats legally required of us, she said. Theres going to be no more tax releases given.

Mrs. Romney said if they release any more information, it will only give them more ammunition.

In regards to their finances, she said theres nothing were hiding.

Its been managed by a blind trust since before Mitt was governor, you know, 2002 forward, she told Morales. And so, you know, Ill be curious to see whats in there too.

Editors Note: Natalie Morales full interview with Ann Romney aired Thursday, August 16 on NBCs Rock Center with Brian Williams.
