Mitt Romney is in London today to fund raise and meet with British leaders, but his trip hit some bumps early on because of a controversial quote in a British newspaper.
The Telegraph quotes an unnamed campaign adviser as saying, "We are part of an Anglo-Saxan heritage and he [Romney] feels that the special relationship is special. The White House didn't fully appreciate the shared history we have."
While Romney has said that he doesn't agree with this statement, the comment has been interpreted by some as having racial overtones and it's garnered a strong reaction from both campaigns.
CNN's Jim Acosta discusses the controversy and outlines the details of Romney's trip live from London on Early Start this morning.
