Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has cancelled his upcoming Thursday appearance on the morning talk show The View.
Entertainment Weekly reported that Romney’s wife, Ann, will still appear on Thursday’s installment.
“Gov. Romney was supposed to be on with us this Thursday with Ann Romney. We were looking forward to it. Over the weekend, his people said that he had scheduling problems and would not be coming on with us. Nor at this point did he feel that he could reschedule. We are happy to have Mrs. Romney on with us. We are sorry that we won’t have Governor Romney and that’s the situation…He can change his mind and we hope he does. It would be our pleasure to have him on the program,” View host Barbara Walters said Monday.
The Huffington Post first announced his intention to appear on the show following his comments in September that 47 percent of Americans do not pay taxes. While his ratings suffered due to those comments, they seemed to have picked up following his first debate with Obama Oct. 3. The two are set to debate again Tuesday.
