It was one of the most anticipated moments at this year's large gathering of conservative activists.
What would Mitt Romney say in his first major speech since he lost the presidential election and, even more importantly, how would the crowd treat him?
The man who videotaped 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney infamous comments about the "47 percent" has stepped out of the shadows.
It was not the outcome they had hoped for, but in his first interview since losing the presidential election, Mitt Romney said he and his wife are moving on.
Speaking to host Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, Romney described last year's presidential race, his second attempt at serving in the White House, as a "great, thrilling experience of a lifetime."
"It didn't end the way we wanted it to, but the experience itself was magnificent," Romney said.
Both he and his wife, Ann, said they did not expect to lose to President Obama last November.
