Republican US presidential candidate Mitt Romney said on Thursday he did not pay less than a 13 percent tax rate at any point over the last 10 years.

Democrats have criticized Romney for not releasing more than two years of tax returns and have questioned whether the former Massachusetts governor has something to hide. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has accused Romney of not paying taxes for 10 years, a claim Romney denies.

"I did go back and look at my taxes, and over the last ten years, I never paid less than 13 percent," Romney told journalists in Greer, South Carolina. "I think the most recent year is 13.6 or something like that," he added.
