Top Romney Donor Tries To Wrangle Last Remaining Hold-Outs

romney1 Top Romney Donor Tries To Wrangle Last Remaining Hold OutsJust when Mitt Romney appears to be down on his luck, his finance team comes into save him.

Woody Johnson, the owner of the New York Jets and the one Mr. Romney’s top donors, convened a meeting of a dozen or so top  unaffiliated Republican financiers this afternoon to urge them to get behind the candidate who most Republicans think is their best candidate to take on Barack Obama.

According to a source who was there, the meeting was an effort to “talk about what is going on in terms of the primaries, in terms of the elections, in terms of the positions, in terms of the focus, the message, and how it was presented. The general consensus was that Mitt Romney is the best candidate.”

There were about a dozen or so Republican donors there, including Jonathan Burkan, Eric Anton and Blair Fensterstock, who hosted a fundraiser for Herman Cain in the fall, Evan Koster, who had been an early backer of Tim Pawlenty and Adam Victor, an energy mogul who has backed both Republicans and Democrats.  Also present was Manhattan GOP chairman Dan Isaacs, who had been an early backer of  Rick Perry.

The meeting comes after Mr. Romney was swept by former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum in yesterday’s primaries in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri. Money however does not seem to be a problem for Mr. Romney–he has raised $58 million so far–but, as they say, every little bit helps.

  1. The Republicans in Checkbook Only (RICO”S) are in a state of panic.

    They have used their Super Pac Glue to put Romney back together after his lose in South Carolina and it worked in Florida and Nevada,

    Then came Rick Santorum and his Tuesday Hat Trick and he was back on the floor in pieces.

    Now they are trying to buy Super Super Glue to put him back together again, any Super, Super Glue is very,very expensive.
