There is no joy in McCotterville. Mighty Thad has dropped out.
And, in an odd twist, Rep. Thaddeus “The Red Eye Candidate” McCotter told the Detroit News this afternoon that he will throw his support behind the man he most reviled during the campaign: former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. This comes as a surprise, since McCotter’s populist campaign was meant in part as an answer to Romney’s establishment candidacy.
McCotter also slammed Romney for opposing the auto bailout, saying Romney’s solution “would have led to liquidation and the loss of more than one million jobs nationwide.”
