Romney May Not Want Brady's Advice
Apparently it didn't help.
NPR's Scott Horsley writes that Senator John McCain took in last night's Super Bowl game in Mitt Romney's home state of Massachusetts, in the lobby bar of the Hyatt Regency in Boston. McCain took no position on the game. (MA, NY, and NJ all have primaries Tuesday). But his Senate colleague Lindsay Graham gave a thumbs up to the Budweiser ad with the Rocky theme (McCain sometimes plays that at rallies.). And McCain laughed out loud at the Doritos ad where the giant mouse fights back.
What did Romney think of McCain being on his home turf?
"For me this is not about trying to tweak somebody or get in their head this is about winning delegates and becoming the nominee,....but if he wants to spend time in Massachusetts fine I don't think it will help him a lot," Romney said according to NPR's Audie Cornish who was with the Romney campaign this weekend.
On the plane ride between Chicago and St. Louis, Romney visited the press in the back. They leapt like monkeys over the empty seats, Audie reports, and crowded the aisle to hear him speak "off the cuff." Romney said he exchanged well wishes via email with the New England quarterback, Tom Brady.
"I actually sent him a couple of plays," Romney joked. "I wish he'd send me a couple of plays."
Ah, maybe he'll want to wait on that, considering how the game ended up for the Patriots.
