Our reader Kyle Raccio alerted us to a story perhaps indicating a preference cascade toward Mitt Romney. Gigi Georges, a long-time aide to both Bill and Hillary Clinton, has announced her support for Mitt Romney.
For most of her life, George said she has been “an active Democrat” and is “proud to have worked for President Bill Clinton and then-Senator Hillary Clinton“:
. . . during that time, I saw firsthand what can be accomplished by strong, bipartisan leadership. I know what it means to work across the aisle on issues that are important to the American people. And that’s why I am supporting Mitt Romney. Governor Romney has a plan to restore the prosperity this country deserves and expects. He will work with people of good will no matter what their party, and he will pursue the policies that are in the best interest of our country, no matter who proposes them. That’s what President Obama promised to do four years ago. But like so many of his promises, bipartisan cooperation is just another one he has broken. We can’t have four more years of failed policies and two parties that can’t work together. We need the change Mitt Romney is offering.
Prominent Democratic woman backs Mitt Romney. Wonder if this is a sign that others might follow — or might already be souring on their fellow partisan.
