Republican Mitt Romney says he doesn't think President Barack Obama should be tried for treason.
Obama's likely Republican opponent told reporters after a campaign rally Monday in Cleveland that "no, of course" the president should not be tried for such an offense.
Romney had a chance to make that clear during the rally, but passed on the opportunity when he ignored a questioner who called for Obama to be tried for treason.
Democrats, and Obama's re-election campaign, pounced on Romney's initial silence.
Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt questioned Romney's willingness to stand up to the "extreme voices" in his party.
