Top Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom brushed aside questions Sunday about presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s tax returns, telling CNN that the issue is not relevant.

“Taxes are not an issue. It’s not what the American people are talking about,” Mr. Fehrnstrom said on “State of the Union.”


Mr. Romney has released his 2010 tax return and has promised to release his 2011 return, but the Obama campaign and its Democratic supporters have called for a more comprehensive financial disclosure by the former Massachusetts governor, a multimillionaire.
