THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES
Romney’s Wealth Emerges as Subtext in ‘Cadillac’ Remark
By Brian Faler -
Mitt Romney is a wealthy man, as he keeps reminding voters, even if it’s unintentional.
In remarks today to the Detroit Economic Club, Romney highlighted his love of American-made cars by saying he owns a Ford Mustang and a Chevrolet pickup, while his wife, Ann, drives “a couple of Cadillacs.” Cadillacs retail for $36,000 to $74,000, according to Edmunds.com., an online auto market. One reason the Romneys may need multiple vehicles is that they own homes in Massachusetts and California, plus a vacation place in New Hampshire.
