After speaking to a crowd of supporters at the Florence Civic Center Tuesday morning, former Massachusetts Governor, and Republican front-runner Mitt Romney talked with NewsChannel 15's Tim McGinnis.
Romney says he expected the other candidates to attack him in Monday night's debate in Myrtle Beach.
"You know, I understand that we typically begin debates by everybody shooting in my direction, but I'm a pretty big boy, I'm able to respond," added Romney.
He says creating jobs in places like the Pee Dee which has been hit hard by unemployment would be a priority if he's elected.
"I will do everything in my power to make America the most attractive place in the world to business," says Romney.
During the debate, he was pressed about when and if he will release his income tax returns. Romney told NewsChannel 15 he will likely release them in April during tax season.
