She has some capitol resources
In the meantime this email was sent out by a number of different Romney staff members over the weekend including the newly added, Nicole Schlinger. We meant to post on Nicole back around Thanksgiving but it had slipped the Cooler's collective conciousness until we received this email.
Schlinger is one of the pre-eminent fundraisers in Iowa politics. Her business, Capitol Resources, is based out of Brooklyn, Iowa (the similarities to Brooklyn, New York are striking). Schlinger is rumored to have received somewhere in the neighborhood of 250K for her services to Governor Romney.
Onto the email many of us received from Ms. Schlinger over the weekend.- Here are excerpts 0f Governor Romney's Iowa teams defense of their candidate- in their own words. The email was titled "Clarifying Gov. Romney's Support for Traditional Marriage."
Ahhh, politics on a Saturday night in December. Only in Iowa! As you may know, an article is being circulated today by supporters of Sen. John McCain as an attempt to mislead voters about Governor Mitt Romney's unwavering support for traditional marriage. In fact, his record of defending marriage is unassailable, and frankly is unmatched by any other political figure in America.
Governor Romney has NEVER supported civil unions or gay marriage -- not only has he not supported it but he has been THE champion battling to preseve traditional marriage on the frontlines. He does believe, however, that we should be a tolerant nation. America is not a punitive, mean-spirited, or bigoted country. Mitt Romney is 100% committed to a federal marriage amendment, while other possible candidates for president, including Senator John McCain, are not.
Then Schlinger goes on to list a litany of facts about Romney's record and closes with...
Thanks for taking the time to listen on a Saturday evening! As we all are, I'm still extremely disappointed about the results of the elections last month. It's easy to see why voters were fed up with months of negative ads. The circulation of this article today reminded me so much of that ... and we have to change if we are going to win!!!!
A couple of small shots at McCain and an empassioned defense of her man. Nice pick-up for team Romney. We'll try and track down the McCain email later today.
