Huff on Cox/Romney's Ample Staff

The Cooler intern has been going to County Central Committee meetings for the past few weeks to get a pulse on whats going on outside the 235/35/80 beltway. What he/she found was that 2 Presidential campaigns have a presence at said central committees. Gov. Mitt Romney has been sending his ample staff to help elect Republicans (which is less than suprising since they need something to do), but more interesting was the presence of Steve Huff on behalf of Cox for President. Huff hails from Delaware County, the home county of soon-to-be Governor Jim Nussle. Huff is known best for his failed Primary attempt against Arlington Mayor Ron Longmuir for an Iowa Senate seat in 2002. Not exactly a feather for your cap. Longmuir went on to be dispatched easily by Democrat Brian Schoenjahn.

With this pickup Cox might move to 98-1 on the Cooler Line, you'll have to wait and see.

With the Hotline linking us regarding the Romney part of the post, we thought we should expand for the out of state visitors.

Romney's has a couple of different field staff in Iowa and they have been seen around the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th districts at Central Committee meetings. The best we can tell is that they don't speak on behalf of Mitt at the meetings formally, they mention what Commonwealth PAC has been doing to help Republicans. They aren't shy about discussing the Governor before and after the meetings though.

7:59- You can't give people an honest view of the political scene without being critical at times. If we wanted to be meanspirited, there are a lot worse things we could've said about Steve Huff, you'll have to trust us on that.

So, If we can't be a little snarky, what fun would that be?

Hope you'll come back, and keep calling us out if we're being unfair. All views are welcome around the cooler.
