In Thursday's Republican presidential debate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said he had the "experience to get this country going again," but said he was not perfect.
“There are a lot of reasons not to elect me," Romney said. "There are a lot of reasons not to elect other people on the stage.”
Romney’s comments came as part of a heated exchange with Gov. Rick Perry (Texas), who said this week that Romney is “Obama-lite.”
The two governors sparred throughout the night over positions each outlined in his respective book.
