TROY, Michigan — Apparently, Ann Romney is tired of sitting in the audience at the Republican debates — she's ready to get in on the action.
While introducing Mitt Romney at an event sponsored by Americans For Prosperity, the candidate's wife sang his praises, and then joked that she should just take his spot at the podium.
"I also decided no more debates," she said, as her husband stood next to her. "If we're going to do another debate, he's going to just sit in the audience and watch me."
CNN canceled a debate that had been scheduled for March 1, after Romney pulled out, citing scheduling difficulties.
