Romney makes effort to show more personal side

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) - Mitt Romney rarely wears suits anymore and sometimes his perfectly combed hair isn't so perfect. He shows up at NASCAR events and tweets pictures of himself eating Subway sandwiches. His wife, Ann, is a staple on the campaign trail and she gushes in a new online video about the start of their four-decade-old "love story."

The Republican presidential front-runner's latest efforts to show his more personal - critics would say more human - side were on display as he sat down with a late-night talk show host for the first time since 2010.

When Jay Leno asked him about potential vice presidents, Romney quipped: "I can do you a favor with this. I'll choose David Letterman."

Expect more such moments, and similar light settings, in the coming weeks.
