After saying he would veto the DREAM Act if elected President and then calling it a handout, GOP Mitt Romney publicly revealed one of his his campaign's worst-kept secrets: that his father was born in Mexico.
Sunday in New Hampshire, Univision News, which is quickly becoming one of the better English-language news outlets for the US Latino market, was covering Romney's campaign in Rochester NY (full story here) when the former Massachusetts Governor began talking about his family history. Here is the excerpt:
During a packed rally at the Rochester Opera House, Romney spoke about his family’s history, in particular his father’s rags-to-riches tale. He briefly referenced the fact that his father, George, was born in Mexico and came to the United States at age five.
