Lots of coverage of Romney at last night's GOP fundraiser. "Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) said Wednesday that his party needs to take a fresh approach to government regulations in the wake of the economic crisis that has rattled the U.S. and world economies."
Also, "Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) said Wednesday that Republicans shouldn't oppose President Obama as a reflex and should praise him when he succeeds."
Roll Call's lead: "Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, widely viewed as a top contender for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, likened Republicans to the revolutionaries of 1776 in a political call to arms issued to Senators and high-dollar Republican donors at Wednesday's National Republican Senatorial Committee spring fundraising dinner."
And Todd Palin talks about the clothes. The AP: "The husband of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says the Republican Party's lavish spending on her wardrobe during the presidential campaign was 'out of our control.' In the May issue of Men's Journal, Todd Palin was asked about the more than $150,000 that the Republican National Committee spent on clothes, accessories and beauty services for the GOP vice presidential nominee. He defended his wife, saying she was focused on preparation for her debate with Joe Biden."
"'She never went to Saks, or any of that stuff,' he said. 'You come into a campaign late, you put all your trust into the team, you got people who are working on VP ops for a long time, and we're just focused on debate prep. I couldn't give a rat's (expletive) about clothes. Please. I mean these are my Sunday go-to-meeting jeans!'"
