WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, said in an interview that aired Sunday “it kills me” to have lost the election to President Obama, but he acknowledged his campaign’s failures, including the harm done by his remarks widely perceived as denigrating less fortunate Americans.
Among the failings: “We weren’t effective taking our message to minority voters. . . . That was a real mistake,” Romney said on Fox News Sunday in his first interview since losing in November.
