Mitt Romney's wife says she doesn't consider herself to be wealthy.
In an interview Monday on Fox News, Ann Romney was asked about criticism that her husband can seem out of touch with average Americans. His worth has been estimated as high as $250 million.
Mrs. Romney said her struggle with multiple sclerosis has given her compassion for people who are suffering from multiple sclerosis, cancer or other diseases.
"We can be poor in spirit, and I don't even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing," Mrs. Romney said. "It can be here today and gone tomorrow."
She added: "How I measure riches is by the friends I have and the loved ones I have and the people that I care about in my life, and that's where my values are and that's where my riches are."
