Romney Tells Fox News He Doesn’t Blame Christie’s Obama Sandy Embrace for Election Loss
The debate over Chris Christie’s “embrace” of President Obama in the final days of Election 2012 continues preoccupy many base Republicans in their discussions of Election 2016.
Everyone seems to have a strong opinion. You undoubtedly have your own, Save Jerseyans.
I’ve taken the position that other factors doomed the Romney campaign, ones that predate both of his presidential campaigns. Exit polling did, however, suggest a clear correlation between late-breaking backing for the President and the manufactured-perception that he responded masterfully to Hurricane Sandy particularly in Sandy-ravaged New Jersey and New York.
But for whatever it’s worth, Mitt Romney went out of his way on yesterday’s special edition Fox News Sunday to make it clear he blames no one but himself for the November disaster:
“I’m not going to worry about how Chris was doing what he thought was best for the people of his state,” Romney told interviewer Chris Wallace. “I lost my election because of my campaign, not because of what anyone else did.”
Mitt is backing up his good will with cash. The former Massachusetts Governor also recently maxed out to Christie’s reelection campaign.
