Romney’s Conservative Positioning
One thing that interests me is how candidates run from their records when they campaign for President. During the 2004 Democratic Presidential primary, I was a monitor for the Republican party. I videotaped all the candidate and heard their campaign stories many times. John Kerry was a great example of this in 2004.
Since Mitt Romney, governor of Massachusetts, will have a “home field advantage” in the NH primary, it will be interesting to see how he repositions himself as a more conservative candidate. NH will need to look at his record to understand the true Mitt.
Another John McCain blog picked up a story about this same issue in the Florida primary. Check it out at http://www.eyeon08.com/2006/09/06/tough-running-on-the-right-when-you-havent-been/
