Democrats Hang Tough on Mitt Romney Debate Bounce

They also continued to hammer Romney for flip-flopping. “I’d say that at the end of the day, Americans are going to know that Romney has changed his position on a number of issues, and they’re not going to be comfortable with that. And that’s going to be reflected come November,” a senior Democratic aide said.

Jesse Ferguson, a spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said that Obama’s popularity in some of the states that are uncontested at the presidential level will ensure Democrats’ success in House races.

“Republicans began the 2010 election thinking Mitt Romney would help them at the top of the ticket but now the Romney-Ryan ticket is a down-ballot drag. President Obama’s overwhelming strength in states like Illinois, New York and California means House Republicans in those states are likely serving their last term in Congress and his competitiveness in the battleground states has given House Democrats a wind at our back,” Ferguson said.
