The wife of Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, told Jay Leno that the election of her Mormon husband would signal "that prejudices are left behind".

The Associated Press reported that Ann Romney continued her talkshow appearances, popping up last night on The Tonight Show.

Asked by host, Jay Leno to reflect on the significance of the first Mormon president, Mrs. Romney said she hoped that if her husband were elected, "We would see more of the same, that prejudices are left behind."

The Washington Post said other topics covered included her emergency plane landing in Colorado last week, which she described as "a lot of smoke, Jay". 

Asked about Michelle Obama, she commented: "She's great, love her."

She also said that her husband "cares for the 100%".

During the appearance, the devoted wife who met Mitt at a dance, was asked whether her husband was a good dancer back then.

"He's gotten to be a better dancer," The New York Post reported.
