…if this is the best his Super PAC can do it’s difficult to buy into that.
An independent group touting Mitt Romney for the GOP presidential nomination has started sending out mailers to Louisiana voters in advance of the state’s March 24 primary – but didn’t quite get the details right for advising voters.
Restore Our Future, a super PAC helping to finance television ads, automated phone calls and direct mail to support Romney, told voters in the Louisiana mailer they should vote for Romney on Tuesday, March 24. But the primary actually falls on a Saturday, not Tuesday.
The mailer went out around north Louisiana, criticizing Rick Santorum as a big-spending Washington insider and calling Romney, the front-runner, a strong conservative leader.
No word yet on whether a new mail piece will go out to the same homes to tell people the correct voting day.
Perhaps Romney’s Super PAC needs to stick to firebombing Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich with negative ads like this ridiculous one they ran in Michigan and Ohio…
…although we’ll give them credit in that this one, which is running in Louisiana now, is perhaps the best exposition yet of Romney as a leader.
Meanwhile Rick Santorum has an event set up for tonight at the Hilton in Lafayette. And Gingrich is claiming victory in a straw poll put on by the Northshore Tea Party.
On Saturday March 10, 2012, the Northshore Tea Party conducted a presidential caucus and straw poll at the Abita Quail Farm in Abita Springs, LA. Over 300 people from across the region participated in our ground breaking event.
The participants heard from representatives of the four GOP presidential campaigns and leaders of the Northshore Tea Party.
Following the speeches, a straw poll was conducted and the results showed three candidates with significant support. Here are the actual percentages:
- Newt Gingrich—34%
- Ron Paul—30.5%
- Rick Santorum—29.5%
- Mitt Romney—6%
