Blogging about Mitt Romney is a lot like trying to run with famous racehorse, Seabiscuit. You know you’ll have to work hard to keep up with him, once in awhile you feel like you’re pulling even, then, before you know it, he’s left you four lengths behind – eating dust!
Here’s a catch-up look at a few highlights from Romney’s campaigning of the last week (not a comprehensive week-in-review because there’s simply too much!).
› Florida – Romney Wows Crowd at The Villages, FL
› Colorado and New Mexico – Romney hits the road for Ken Buck (CO) and Susana Martinez (NM).
Romney says thanks for 600,000 facebook likes with Susana Martinez in NM:
Idaho Falls – Romney speaks to business leaders at Melaleuca on behalf of Gov Otter.
Boise – Romney speaks again for Gov Otter.
› Nevada – Romney stumps for GOP candidates in Las Vegas including NV Lt. Gov Brian Krolicki, U.S. Congress candidate Joe Heck. Later, he headlined a fundraiser for NV gubernatorial hopeful Brian Sandoval.
Nevada News Bureau 10/6/10 – Romney and Heck comment while touring Las Vegas Color Graphics:
Romney brushed aside questions about his future political plans, saying he is concentrating on helping get people like Heck, Krolicki, Sharron Angle, and gubernatorial candidate Brian Sandoval elected.
In a statement that gave a glimpse of a future campaign that would appeal to angry Tea Party types, Romney went out of his way to admit that Republicans are in part responsible for the huge federal deficits and runaway government spending, while distancing himself from those decisions.
“We spent too much. We allowed government to get too big when we were in charge. I didn’t happen to be part of that team, but I think that has been a real issue,” said Romney.
