Todd Rokita's bad week just got worse. The Democratic National Committee issued a press release this afternoon attacking Mitt Romney for his Rokita connection. Rokita hosted a Romney fundraiser earlier this month.
Romney is in Indianapolis to address the state Republican dinner and no doubt will have to say something about the scandal created by Rokita's offensive remarks made to a county GOP dinner last week.
The DNC lumps Rokita in with a Romney supporter who compared Democrats to Hitler. This was supposed to be a good day for the Secretary of State.
It sounds like Romney has more reason to be disappointed with Rokita. Presidential campaign disclosure statements show rival Rudy Guiliani raising considerably more funds in Indiana than Romney during the latest reporting period. Guiliani's efforts are being headed up by Marion Co. Prosecutor Carl Brizzi. Guiliani raised $172,450 compared to the $83,750 raised by Romney.
