Republican Leaders Dodge Questions On The 47%
Senate leaders fled their weekly press conference before taking any questions from the press in an attempt to avoid answering whether the agree with Mitt Romney about the 47%.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) excused himself in the middle of the availability. The rest — Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and Sens. John Thune (R-SD), Roy Blunt (R-MO) and John Barrasso (R-WY) — made no mention of Romney or the race in their comments and instead lamented Senate dysfunctionality and attacked Democratic policies.
When reporters ran after them to ask about Romney’s comments, they dodged.
