SHARE Romney adviser: Mitt is Tea Party’s kind of guy

TAMPA–Ron Kaufman, an adviser to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, said Romney should be the natural choice of Tea Party supporters in November.

“He’s a good Tea Party candidate,” Kaufman said during an appearance at the Daily Briefing, hosted by the National Journal and Atlantic magazine.

“I think he’s the ideal candidate for those folks,” he said, citing Romney’s lack of Washington experience and maneuvering past his health care reform law in Massachusetts.

For other Kaufman observations, read on:

Kaufman said the secrecy surrounding Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan as his veep choice shows how he operates on a “need to know basis”–much like former president and CIA director George H.W. Bush, for whom Kaufman also worked.

“If you were not in a state with a contested Republican primary, you probably don’t know Mitt Romney,” Kaufman said.
