Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is weighing in on Gov. Rick Perry's flat tax plan.
The former governor said any plan must simplify the current tax code.
"I like my tax plan better (than Gov. Perry's), as you might not be surprised to hear, which has a number of features," Romney told Virginia residents at a fundraiser Wednesday night.
"My view is that the key to a tax policy is to reduce the tax burden on the people who have been hurt most by the 'Obameconomy' and that's the middle class," he said.
Romney was joined by Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell who said he thinks a governor or former governor should be the next president of the United States. McDonnell has not yet endorsed a candidate.
Regent University School of Government distinguished professor Charles Dunn talked with CBN News about some of the advantages Romney has this campaign season. Click play for his comments.
The following day, Romney thanked volunteers for making calls on behalf of Virginia legislative candidates.
He said he'd made a call himself and left a message saying, "It's Mitt Romney, it really is."
