Ann Romney ‘Very, Very Partial’ To Paul Ryan For 2016 (VIDEO)

Asked to weigh in on the next presidential election, Ann Romney said Thursday that she’s partial toward the man who served as the running mate to her husband, 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

“There are some great candidates out there and, you know, I think Mitt and I are always very, very partial to Paul Ryan but, you know, we don’t even know if he’s going to run,” she said during an appearance on CBS. “But there are some good candidates.”

She also rejected the notion that there was any residual bitterness between the Romneys and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who took heat from Republicans for his embrace of President Barack Obama following Hurricane Sandy.

“Things are made into bigger things than people think,” Romney said. “There are some great guys out there. Chris is a great guy. We love him. It’s all good. We have no bitterness towards anyone.”
