Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) said Thursday he expects President Obama’s reelection campaign and their allies to try to capitalize on Mitt Romney’s lack of cash flow coming out of the Republican primary, and to try to overwhelm him with negative ads over the next few months.
“The time to really try to run down the Republican carpet bombing is about to start,” Barbour said at a briefing with reporters at the National Press Club.
“If you got a bad record you want to try to disqualify your opponent to make him unacceptable,” Barbour said. “And the easiest time to do it is this period when Romney doesn’t have much money or access to much money, and they’ve got a huge amount of money that they haven’t had to spend.”
