(Holly Bailey) -- Still in damage control mode over his "47 percent" remark captured by a hidden camera, Mitt Romney repeatedly insisted Wednesday that he is running to represent "100 percent" of America and that he has a record of being inclusive.
"My campaign is about the 100 percent of America," Romney said in a forum sponsored by the Spanish-language network Univision.
Romney made his comments just days after a video came to light that captured Romney suggesting President Barack Obama's supporters—which he identified as 47 percent of the voting electorate—had a "victim" mentality and were dependent on government handouts. The video was recorded on a hidden camera at a Florida fundraiser earlier this year.
Asked about the video, Romney insisted he was running to represent all Americans, using the phrase "100 percent" four separate times. He pointed to his record as governor of Massachusetts, a mostly Democratic state, as proof that he can lead all people, regardless of political party.
"I have a record," Romney insisted. "I have demonstrated my capacity to help the 100 percent."
Addressing a large Hispanic audience, Romney tempered his rhetoric on the subject of immigration—insisting his policy will not be to "round up people and deport them."
"Our system isn't to deport people," Romney insisted.
