From my perspective, it seems Gov. Romney is on a roll. From the NRO Party in DC — where everyone seemed genuinely enthused about his ’08 chances — to the mail we receive on a daily basis… it seems that the guy is at the top of his game.
That’s why I was gratified to read this article, in USNews & World Report:
There’s been a lot of political buzz about Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s 2008 bid for the Republican presidential nomination, and now I know why: In one swoop, his Commonwealth PAC this week hired what could be the A-team of political consultants.
“Mitt Romney means business,” says media guru Alex Castellanos.
The article identifies three new additions to the Romney Team, which seem to indicate that the Governor has momentum.
Insiders said the moves propel Romney to the top tier with Sen. John McCain in the presidential bid and suggest that he’s the comer in the race. Technically, the trio were hired on to help Romney’s PAC influence the upcoming midterm elections, but I bet that they really came on to build up his image, platform, and national stature moving into 2007, when the nomination battle really begins.
Wow. What will 2007 bring? After a momentous 2006, I honestly can’t wait.
