Romney will probably not be firing his staff

Following a Wall Street Journal editorial yesterday that labeled Mitt Romney's campaign "politically dumb" and called on Romney to fire team staffers for not addressing certain attacks from the Obama camp, the Washington Post reports there will be some tweaking to Romney's campaign; but probably no firings.

The campaign plans to bolster its rapid response and overall messaging operations and to assemble a senior staff for the eventual vice presidential running mate, according to strategists close to the campaign. They said some Republicans who have been informally advising the campaign may assume more official duties, including appearing as surrogates on television. The strategists said the moves could be announced as early as next week. ...

There are no plans, however, to alter Romney’s core team of advisers, most of whom have worked for the former Massachusetts governor for years, and campaign officials said it was highly unlikely that Romney would demote or fire any of his senior staffers.
