Duh: Romney strategists say campaign was two years behind Obama’s

in Uncategorized by

Warner Jones, digital program manager on Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, told Campaigns and Elections that it would have taken Romney’s campaign an extra two years to match the digital infrastructure assembled by President Obama’s reelection effort. 

“Romney’s digital team was a fraction of the incumbent’s–32 people compared to some 200 working for Obama’s digital operation. Moreover, almost half of the Romney digital operation was done by outside consultants–only 17 were in house.”
