Romney With Politico’s Mike Allen and the Des Moines Register Editorial Board

Email Email Print

Mitt Romney has clearly heard the criticism that he hasn’t been available enough to the MSM, and so he sat down with Mike Allen yesterday. The story of the interview is here, but Allen –the most influential reporter in D.C.?– touts the interview in his widely read morning Playbook, channeling Joe Scarborough to do so.

A second in-depth interview is the one Romney provided the editors of the Des Moines Register
last month, another example of his effectiveness in long-format interviews.

Will Romney “flood the zone” with extended Q-and-As with reporters and analysts from across the spectrum? He should. Like Newt, he’s very good at it, even though he is routinely asked the same set of increasingly boring questions. His willingness to run the gauntlet from small town paper to the Sunday shows, with a lot of talk radio thrown in, is exactly what a candidate who is fighting for a nomination does, and since that combative quality is what the GOP base wants most in its nominee, the perfect opportunity is in front of Romney.

At the end-of-day meeting, the candidate ought to ask for a list of interview requests he received but did not give and then ask his team why and which audiences were missed because of those choices.
