Ann and Mitt Romney
DUBUQUE, Iowa (CNN)–At an "Ask Mitt anything" event at the Best Western in Dubuque, Iowa on Saturday, Ann Romney fell to the floor as she stepped off a small stage she was sharing with her husband. She recovered quickly, quipping that she was bucked off a horse earlier in the week and that this fall didn't compare to that. The stage was only a few inches high.
She later made light of the tumble, joking to me "I fell on da butt in Dubuque".
The campaign said that she fell because of "stage failure". One of the legs of the riser folded up as she stepped toward the edge.
Ann Romney suffers from multiple sclerosis, which is in remission.
