Ed Gillespie, a senior adviser to presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, on Sunday fended off accusations that his boss had only made Sunday morning appearances on Fox News.

"Do you think we're ever going to see him on one of these Sunday morning interview shows?" CBS host Bob Schieffer asked Gillespie. "I know he does Fox but we'd love to have him sometime as would [NBC's] Meet the Press and would the ABC folk."

"You know, Bob, the fact is that we're going to take our message to the American people," Gillespie explained. "You saw him talking to schoolchildren last week giving a speech on education reform."

He added: "And I have great respect for the [Sunday morning] shows and I'm proud to be with you today. But the fact is how we get our message to the American people and covey that to the voters, you know, we'll have to consider a number of options in that regard and I'm sure the Sunday shows are one of them."

"Well, I know the school children were always happy to see him," Schieffer quipped. "But I want to make sure he knows we would be happy to see him too."

"I'll carry that back to [the Romney headquarters in] Boston," Gillespie replied.
