“Romney Talk May Change El Paso Minds”
That’s the headline on the Colorado Springs Gazette write-up a Mitt Romney appearance at a local GOP fund-raiser. The Romney folks have to like this quote from the story:
“God, he sounds like Ronald Reagan,” former state Sen. Ed Jones said. “I really like what I hear, and right now I’m just going to be listening and watching.”
