(WASHINGTON) — Mitt and Ann Romney will appear in a pre-taped interview on Fox News Sunday airing March 3, marking the first TV appearance by Mitt since the 2012 Republican presidential nominee conceded the election in the early morning hours of Nov. 7.
Among other things, anchor Chris Wallace asked the couple about their lives over the past four months after having been in the media spotlight since Mitt announced his intention to seek the GOP nod in June 2011.
Mitt tells Wallace, “We were on a roller coaster, exciting and thrilling, ups and downs. But the ride ends, and then you get off. And it’s not like, ‘Oh, can’t we be on a roller coaster the rest of our life?’ It’s like, ‘no, the ride’s over.’”
Ann equated the experience to the couple’s work for the Mormon Church, having been in high positions of power and then “you’re released and you’re nobody…it was an amazing thing, and it was really quite a lot of energy and a lot of passion and a lot of — a lot of people around us and all of a sudden, it was nothing.”
