What would Romney do with the presidential salary?
DOVER, New Hampshire (CNN) -- If elected president, former Gov. Mitt Romney, the wealthiest of the presidential candidates, said he would probably take the presidential salary, but that he'd "donate at least that amount or more to charity."
At a press conference in Dover, New Hampshire on Tuesday, Romney said he "hadn't really thought ahead that far" and that it was presumptuous to talk about it at this point. When Romney served as governor of Massachusetts, he did not take the taxpayer-paid salary.
Romney, a former venture capitalist, is expected to report assets between $190 and $250 million to the Federal Election Commission. He had asked for an extension.
