Romney: Santorum Trying to ‘Kidnap’ Primary



Text  



Earlier today, Mitt Romney told reporters that Rick Santorum was trying to “kidnap the primary process” by encouraging Democrats to vote against the ex-governor in Michigan’s primary, the Associated Press reports. Romney also argued the reason he was struggling to win conservatives’ support was his reluctance to say “outrageous things”:

“It’s very easy to excite the base with incendiary comments. We’ve seen throughout the campaign that if you’re willing to say really outrageous things that are really accusative and attacking of President Obama, you’re going to jump up in the polls,” Romney said. Fielding questions from the national traveling press corps for the first time in nearly three weeks, he said: “I’m not willing to light my hair on fire to try and get support. I am what I am.”
