Matt Romney who graciously greeted volunteers made headlines last winter when he suggested his father would provide his tax returns only after President Barack Obama released his birth certificate.
It's a remark he attempted to smooth over, adding he does not question President Obama's citizenship.
"Yes, I am satisfied, absolutely," said Matt Romney.
Mitt Romney who is independently wealthy faced scrutiny for not paying a higher tax percentage, when asked about his father being part of the so-called 1-percent of Americans, Matt Romney said, "I think that everybody wants to be part of that one percent if you call it that everybody wants a chance to dream, to grow and prosper."
Mitt Romney, who is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is expected to win over the Laie community, whose faith is pre-dominantly Mormon.
When asked if he believes President Obama is a Christian, Matt Romney said yes but did not elaborate.
