Via The Hill:
DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) on Firday accused Mitt Romney of rooting against the recovery, pointing to a report that his campaign urged Florida Gov. Rick Scott to downplay his state’s economic success.
“Unfortunately, the Republicans in Congress continue to demonstrate that they’re rooting for failure, as evidenced, Soledad, by the Romney campaign telling my state’s governor they should tone down the progress and the celebration about the progress that our state’s made because that’s not in line with what the Romney campaign wants to telegraph about the president’s record on job creation,” Wasserman Schultz told CNN.
A spokesman for Scott denied the report Thursday, and the Romney campaign said the notion their candidate would ask Republican governors to downplay economic improvements was “not in line with Gov. Romney’s thoughts or his message.”
