Much earlier in the campaign, John McCain would spoil Mitt Romney’s events (here and here). Now, I wonder if Romney is doing it to McCain. Two weeks ago, McCain announced three policy speeches. Last week was Iraq. Today is the economic. Later on, there will be domestic policy.
So, last Tuesday, a day before McCain, Romney gives a fairly pedestrian speech on foreign and defense policy. And yesterday, Romney issues a press release on economic policy, something he is much better at, and gets a story in the AP about his own policy. Again, nothing particularly new, calling on the GOP to implement … its position when we get back in the majority in the House.
The purpose is, of course, to get in the news stories and get in the morning clippings for the reporters. I think it is working.
Is Romney doing this to Rudy Giuliani?
