LITCHFIELD, N.H. (AP) — Mitt Romney says his business experience makes him more qualified to be president than Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

The former Massachusetts governor mentioned his 25 years in the private sector when asked Monday about Perry's weekend entrance into the Republican race. Addressing reporters inside Litchfield Technology, Romney said that working in the "real economy," as he had, is an essential qualification for the next president.

Romney did not mention Perry by name, but said that among his rivals, only he and Herman Cain have significant business experience. The bulk of Perry's experience is in government.

Romney said he would not change his campaign strategy following Perry's entrance. He focused largely on President Barack Obama and said the president is spending too much time campaigning.
