Ann Romney’s MS created campaign health ‘scare’

Ann Romney reveals in a new interview that, in the days leading up to the Super Tuesday presidential primaries on March 6, she silently suffered through a challenging health situation related to the multiple sclerosis diagnosis she received in 1998.

“I was quite fatigued, and I knew I couldn’t quit,” Romney told “Entertainment Tonight” in an interview airing Thursday night. “I didn’t tell anybody I was tired. I just kept going.
