Ann Romney says the election of her husband, a Mormon, would signal “that prejudices are left behind” just as the election of President Obama sent that signal.

The wife of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney tells “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno that she loves the fact that the nation elected its first African-American president.

Asked by 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 Romneys met in high school. Asked whether Mitt Romney was a good dancer back then, she tells Leno: “He’s gotten to be a better dancer.”

Mrs. Romney’s appearance was taped for Tuesday’s night Leno program.
