Romney camp wants to avoid Rev. Wright issue


After news broke that a group of Republicans is planing to spend $10 million to rehash the ties between President Barack Obama and Rev. Jeremiah Wright as an election issue, Mitt Romney's campaign released a statement saying they don't want anything to do with it.

“Unlike the Obama campaign, Gov. Romney is running a campaign based on jobs and the economy, and we encourage everyone else to do the same. President Obama’s team said they would ‘kill Romney,’ and, just last week, David Axelrod referred to individuals opposing the president as ‘contract killers.’ It’s clear President Obama’s team is running a campaign of character assassination. We repudiate any efforts on our side to do so.”

Of course, the Romney campaign can say they don't want anything to do with it but they can't really do anything about it.
