Raw Video Mitt Romney interview WNWO exclusive

UPDATE: WNWO spoke exclusively Mitt Romney as he fights to win the Buckeye State during a campaign stop at Lake Erie College in Painesville, Ohio on Friday.

I was given a five minute window where we could question the Republican presidential nominee.

I asked him about his statements to "let Detroit go into bankruptcy."

I asked him about gay marriage and abortion.

Lastly, I asked him about universal healthcare and if he would repeal it or change it.
