Consultant Stu Stevens lays blame for Romney's loss on Hurricane Sandy

in Uncategorized by

Former Romney strategist Stuart Stevens told Charlie Rose that the campaign lost momentum in the final week as Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast.

“After the storm, I never had a good feeling,” said Stevens. “Not that the storm impacted things so much, per se, but these races — a race like this is a lot like an NBA game. It’s all about ball control at the end… We went from having these big rallies around the country to literally sitting around in hotel rooms and there was just nothing we could do about it.”
