Tea Party Patriots National Coordinator Keli Carender says that the Republicans did not have a good ground game for the election and Mitt Romney’s health care legislation in Massachusetts was a liability.
On why Romney lost the election, Carender says, “In a nutshell, the Republicans sat on their hands for four years. After 2008, you had Barack Obama and the Democrats who left paid staffers in critical swing states and offices open, and they were working to indentify new voters… that they managed to register in the four years between the two elections. And I don’t know what the Republicans were doing. The Tea Party was just getting started.”
