Is Mitt Romney Downplaying His Massachusetts Roots?
Is Mitt Romney Downplaying His Massachusetts Roots? As other Republican presidential primary candidates try to turn his Bay State roots into a negative, Romney and his crew seem to be maintaining a distance from his four years as governor of Massachusetts. “I went to Massachusetts to make it different. I didn’t go there to begin a political career, running time and time again,” he said during yesterday’s debate, prompting Newt Gingrich to foam at the mouth while turning to Romney’s ’94 loss and his “something like” 200 days off.
