“There’s lots of money to be raised from far-right tea party types appealing to a very personal dislike of Barack Obama,” campaign manager Jim Messina wrote in an email to Mr. Obama’s supporters. “When Romney tells a reporter that we need a president ‘who believes in American principles’ or that President Obama will be just a ‘footnote in history,’ that’s who he’s talking to.”
A spokeswoman for Mr. Romney said the Obama campaign is just trying to distract people from the real issues in the race.
“The last thing President Obama and his political machine want is to have to face Mitt Romney in the general election,” said Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg. “Since last year, the Obama campaign has spent all of their time thinking of ways to attack Romney and distract from their own record of failure.”
Marking his Florida primary win Tuesday night, Mr. Romney made a pitch for supporters to contribute to a $1 million “one-term fund” to end Mr. Obama’s presidency. In response, Mr. Messina said Wednesday that the Obama campaign is starting a $2 million fundraising drive to create a “two-term fund.”
New Jersey Sen. Joseph M. Kyrillos Jr. held kickoff events Wednesday in Monmouth County - which he represents - and also in Burlington County.
