Ann Weighs In on Tax Disclosure

    FILE - In this March 19, 2012, file photo, Ann Romney, wife of Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney talks with audience members after her husbands spoke at the University of Chicago in Chicago. The spotlight on Ann Romney is getting brighter. Two out of three voters still don’t know the wife of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. But her profile is growing as Mitt Romney moves into the general election against President Barack Obama. She was a stay-at-home mother of five boys. She bakes cookies. And, at 63, she has 16 grandchildren who call her "Mamie." But don’t be fooled: Republicans and Democrats alike see Ann Romney as an effective political weapon. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green, File)
