TMZ, the gossip website, reports Ann Romney was approached about joining the ABC competition show after Mitt Romney was defeated by President Obama. 

Ann Romney proclaimed herself a "huge fan" of DWTS after being spotted at last season's finale with a daughter-in-law and granddaughter. An unnamed Romney spokesperson told TMZ that Romney "was approached, but she declined." 

Ann Romney was her husband's not-so-secret weapon in the 2012 presidential campaign, often doing solo campaign appearances and interviews where she helped humanize the former Massachusetts governor.

She had her own star turn as a prime-time speaker at the Republican National Convention last summer, plus appeared as a guest host on ABC's Good Morning America in the final weeks of the campaign.
