"I’m the guy who has egg all over his face, but instead of egg, it’s a big Romney/Ryan tattoo. It’s there for life."
"All of us should be rooting for a decisive election outcome. Why? Because a close or contested election would deal a body blow to the nation’s political health."
“I repudiate the effort by that PAC to promote an ad strategy of the nature they’ve described,” Romney told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt in an interview set to air later today and previewed by Townhall.com. “I would like to see this campaign focus on the economy, on getting people back to work, on seeing rising incomes and growing prosperity — particularly for those in the middle class of America.”
A new Gallup poll finds Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama statistically tied among registered voters heading into November’s general election.
According to Gallup, 47 percent of voters polled are backing Romney, compared to 45 percent who prefer Obama. That’s well within the poll’s margin of error, which is plus or minus 3 percent.
The presumptive Republican nominee tells ABC News’ Diane Sawyer that he’s appointed Beth Myers, one of his closest advisers, to oversee the vetting process for his vice presidential running mate.
“I have selected someone who has been a counselor of mine for a number of years, Beth Myers,” Romney told Sawyer in an interview set to air on ABC’s “World News” and “Nightline.” “She was my chief of staff when I was governor. I’ve asked her to be the person who oversees the process of the vice presidential selection and vetting an analysis, and so she’s begun that process and is putting together the kinds of things you need to do to vet potential candidates.”
Myers, who previously managed Romney’s 2008 Republican presidential bid, is one of the former governor’s longest serving advisers and is personally close to the candidate and his wife, Ann, who is also expected to play a pivotal role in helping Romney choose a No. 2 to join the GOP ticket.
