LAS VEGAS (AP) - Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa says Mitt Romney's recent comments about the foreclosure crisis show he's out of touch with middle-class Americans.

Romney told the Las Vegas Review-Journal's editorial board that
he wants to allow home foreclosures to "hit the bottom" to help the housing industry recover.

In a speech to Washoe County Democrats in Reno on Friday night,
Villaraigosa said Romney's remarks show he does not want to help "responsible homeowners who have been scammed by lenders" or"middle-class families who - through no fault of their own - have hit hard times."

Villaraigosa says the remarks are another sign that Romney and other Republican presidential candidates have lost touch with the middle class.

Nevada has the country's highest foreclosure rate and highest unemployment rate.
