Romney's sister blames media's 'vilification' for brother's loss in White House race
New York, Nov 10 (ANI): Mitt Romney's sister Jane has come to the defense of her younger brother slamming media over the way they had treated the Republican Presidential contender, and blaming them for making him lose the White House race.
Jane, the eldest Romney sister, told Inside Edition about how she felt the media "vilified" Mitt after it was reported that he traveled with Seamus, the family dog, strapped to the roof of their car.
"He was my dog...It's a crate. That's how they travel. Here's the deal. All these stupid little stories are fabricated and it hurt," the New York Daily News quoted her, as saying.
Jane, 75, also said that Mitt's wife, Ann, has not been taking the loss particularly well.
"She was crying. She was very emotional. For Ann, it was definitely shell-shock," she said.
"She won't want to be in a race like this again," she added.
According to the paper, Jane explained what she thinks went wrong with the campaign, and blamed her own family for not doing enough to help him secure a win.
"I feel like our family could have helped more. But we were scared we'd be on the 6 p.m. news, misspeaking," she added. (ANI)
