Talk of housing has largely been absent from the presidential campaign until recently.

Mitt Romney declared he would fix the housing crisis during a Wednesday trip to Nevada, which has been particularly hard-hit by the mortgage crisis.

Also on Wednesday, the Financial Times reported that Obama, if re-elected, would get rid of the controversial official overseeing Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.

We talk to Shahien Nasiripour, the FT reporter who broke the story.
