Palin: I Didn’t Mean to Step on Romney’s Toes During Campaign Rollout
Sarah Palin said Sunday she didn’t mean to step on Mitt Romney’s toes by showing up in New Hampshire in her “One Nation” tour bus the day Romney announced his candidacy for president.
“The New Hampshire Leader” put Palin’s clambake at the top of its coverage last Friday, the day after Romney rolled out his official campaign announcement. His announcement warranted a small picture on the Front Page and a story on Page 3.
The former Alaska governor said she wasn’t trying to pull attention away from Romney, but the media just can’t get enough of her. As for Romney, she said while she disagrees with his health care policy while he was governor of Massachusetts, she certainly isn’t trying to diminish his image.
“I apologize if I stepped on any — any of that PR that Mitt Romney needed or wanted that day. I do sincerely apologize. I didn’t mean to step on anybody’s toes,” Palin told “Fox News Sunday.”
