Las Vegas (CNN) - GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is apologizing for the recent comment he said about the "poor" during a campaign stop.
"It was a misstatement. I misspoke. I've said something that is similar to that but quite acceptable for a long time. And, you know when you do I don't know how many thousands of interviews now and then you might get it wrong. And I misspoke."
Romney says he accepts the consequences. Most of the Republican presidential candidates will be campaigning in Nevada today ahead of tomorrow's caucuses.
