Mitt Romney may have an unlikely obsticle in his attempts to move back towards the political middle - Republicans in the House of Representatives.
The New York Times says members of the House made it clear they are driving the major policy agenda for the GOP. That mostly means Rep. Paul Ryan's budget plan.
“If there was to be a difference of opinion on this, then I think I would make my feelings known,” said Representative Tim Griffin, Mr. Romney’s Arkansas campaign chairman. “I would say, ‘Wait, what are you doing?’ If he says something I disagree with, that’s his right, but I am going to say I disagree.”
A campaign spokeswoman, Andrea Saul, said in a statement: “Mitt Romney is in this race to turn the economy around and get Americans back to work, and he will need the help of Congress to do that. Governor Romney will welcome the help of Congress to enact his agenda and get the country back on track.”
But disagreements have already begun to develop. On Wednesday, the Romney camp said the candidate had no problem with a Democratic law making it easier for women to sue in equal pay cases — though House Republicans had denounced it as a trial lawyers’ bonanza.
