The GOP presidential candidate’s Washington team is intensifying its efforts, moving into official office space and holding meetings on Capitol Hill. The team has also begun reaching out to K Streeters and former Republican administration officials to get guidance on the Senate confirmation process and recommendations for jobs in a possible Romney White House. [...]Gettin' the old Bush team back in town. Because the only thing more unappealing than Mitt Romney might be the thought of Mitt Romney surrounding himself with the crew of George W. Bush's personal iceberg.
The transition is being led by former Bush Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt, a fellow Mormon who is expected to play a senior role in any Romney White House.
This, though, may be the best blind quote in a week:
“Their task is doing their job no matter what,” said a source close to the campaign. “Just because the guy had a crap week last week, doesn’t mean they stop. This is a very volatile presidential race. They have to prepare as if he wins.”You can just feel the momentum, can't you?
