The Brody File will be at this Thursday’s GOP presidential debate in South Carolina. Mitt Romney will not.
Oy-gevalt. Read below from Politico:
Mitt Romney won't attend the first Republican presidential debate in South Carolina on Thursday, his exploratory committee confirmed Monday.
“Gov. Romney will not be participating in this week’s South Carolina debate because it’s still early, the field is too unsettled and he’s not yet an announced candidate," top Romney aide Matt Rhoades said in a statement Monday. "Fox News and the South Carolina Republican Party have both been notified of this decision."
Romney also announced he'll visit South Carolina on May 21 — likely a move designed to limit suggestions that he's snubbing the early primary state by not showing up to the debate.
Talk about running scared. Clearly Romney doesn’t want to face the music from the other candidates on stage when they start beating him up over his Massachusetts healthcare plan.
That day will come. Just not this Thursday. And he’s the supposed frontrunner? Where’s he running his campaign from? An underground bunker?
