The RNC held a conference call today with former Gov. John Sununu, a top Romney campaign surrogate who is utterly quotable.
“I love to criticize campaigns,” he harrumphed, when asked if Romney’s campaign would be aggressive enough. “This campaign, as I watched it through the primaries, had discipline and spent its money aggressively and tough at exactly the right time, step by step.”
“If I had to give you my own personal technical term for what they’re going to do,” he said — “They’re going to carpet bomb them.”
Answering a follow-up question regarding his “carpet bomb” comment, Sununu noted: “[Romney's campaign was] smart enough to hoard their cash. They are now sitting here with $60 million more than the Obama campaign — and a group of friendly PACs out there with an even bigger difference in money…they saved their money. They are targeting…I don’t know…my guess is they’re targeting between 12-15 states.”
