Romney: Bill Clinton Said Watching Ann Speak Made Him Want To Join GOP

In a conference call with donors on Wednesday, former presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Bill Clinton told him that Hurricane Sandy helped Obama. Romney also revealed that Clinton told him watching Ann Romney speak at the convention "tempted" him to join ranks with Republicans.

ROMNEY: "There's no question that the Hurricane also had an impact. I spoke with President Clinton the day before yesterday, he called and spent 30 minutes chatting with me. He said a week out I thought you were going to win. And he said, but the hurricane happened, and it gave the president a chance to be presidential, and to look bipartisan, and you know he got a little more momentum, and of course he also said that when he was watching Ann speak at the Republican convention, he decided he was tempted to join the Republican Party. So he may have just been effusive with generous comments as he chatted.”
