If it seems like it was just a few weeks ago that Mitt Romney was endorsing millionaire vulture foreclosure specialist David Trott for Michigan’s 11th District, you’re right. But that didn’t stop Romney from swinging through Michigan for a do-over. Yesterday he was back in town to do it again for Trott who was part of Romney’s finance team during the 2012 presidential election:
This is a good man,” Romney said about Trott. “There are some people in politics who are really good at talking — talking and campaigning, ranting and raving. But in terms of getting anything done, they just don’t do it. This is a guy who spent his life actually getting things done. …
“This is a guy who is going to Washington, not just to fight, but to win.”
If not ranting and raving is the new bar for a good Republican candidate to get over, Democrats are in far better shape than I thought. And, let’s not forget what “getting things done” means to David Trott. It means he threw upwards of 80,000 people out of their homes in one year alone during the height of the Great Recession and made millions in the process.
But, Mitt is right. Trott didn’t rant and rave while he was doing it.
By the way, Inside Michigan Politics has Trott up over Kerry Bentivolio by 14 points. It’s really a “screwed if you do, screwed if you don’t” moment in the 11th District Republican primary.
