Romney Campaign Suddenly Stops Talking About Libya
Heading into the final presidential debate which is centered on foreign policy, it’s odd that the Romney campaign has decided not to talk about Libya. But after Romney’s showing at the last debate, maybe it’s not such a bad idea.
Asked why the issue was absent from Romney’s public remarks, senior adviser Kevin Madden told BuzzFeed the campaign decided to focus their post-debate Virginia swing on exposing Obama’s lack of specific proposals, and challenge him on gas prices and the economy…
But another campaign official, granted anonymity to discuss strategy, said their plan to re-litigate the Libya issue was postponed when instant polls and focus groups immediately after the debate showed Romney winning exchanges about the economy, deficit, and gas prices. In the time between the Tuesday night spin room, and the candidate’s Wednesday morning rally, Romney’s team decided they would build on their momentum in those areas, rather than play defense on foreign policy, the official said.
