:Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who ran as a moderate in past campaigns in Massachusetts, on Monday rated himself as conservative as the late President Reagan.
In his 12th visit to Florida since January, the former Massachusetts governor was asked to grade himself as a conservative on a scale of one to 10 if Reagan were a 10.
"Probably a 10 as well," Romney said. "I'm trying to think in what places we would differ. As I've gotten older, Reagan keeps getting smarter and smarter."
