Axelrod Talks Romney's Possible Vice Presidential Pick
The Obama campaign’s senior strategist joined “Fox News Sunday” in an exclusive interview to discuss the 2012 campaign, Mitt Romney’s possible Vice Presidential running mate, and the Senate majority leader’s accusation that Romney hasn’t paid taxes in 10 years.
One of the big questions hanging over the presidential race is who Mitt Romney will choose to be his running mate. When asked who he thinks will be the pick, Axelrod said, “I suspect is that he’ll double down on his economic philosophy… he’s going to pick one of these Back to the Future candidates.”
On the other topic of the day, Mitt Romney’s decision to only release 2 years of tax returns has become one of the Obama Campaign’s favorite lines of attack. This week Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said an unnamed source told him that Romney hadn’t paid taxes in 10 years.
When asked about this latest dustup, Axelrod claimed, “I don’t know who Harry was talking to.” He then added, "The point here, though, Chris, is the Romney campaign and Gov. Romney can resolve this in 10 seconds – they can release the tax returns."
