John Sununu On Romney’s Fall Campaign Strategy: ‘They’re Going To Carpet Bomb ‘Em’

Mitt Romney surrogate and former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu provided some insight on Wednesday on what we can expect the Romney campaign’s fall strategy to like. And according to Sununu, it’s not going to be pretty.

“If I have to give you my own personal, technical term for what they’re going to do, they’re going to carpet bomb ’em,” Sununu said, on a conference call with reporters. Specifically, he was referring to campaign ads in battleground states.

The campaign has a sufficient amount of money, he said, and they plan to spend it very strategically.

More specifics, per Sununu (via TPM):

“This campaign had the discipline when the Obama campaign was spending $100 to $150 million pounding them, they had the discipline to watch and evaluate what was happening.”

“My guess is that they are targeting 12 to 15 states that they’re going to go into. And these folks are very disciplined, they’re very measured, they evaluate the effect of their individual ad and where they place it and they know exactly what they’re doing.”

Hey, swing staters, you’ve got something to look forward to.
