Presidential campaigns are offset contests of will and differing visions of what is right for the nation. But the contests usually maintain a certain degree of civility. The race between President Obama and his presumptive challenger Mitt Romney is something different, and surrogates are getting ugly, early!
Appearing on MSBC, Senator Barbara Boxer challenged voters on a level not seen or hear in recent memory.
And then there is Governor Brian Schweitzer (D-MT), who in an interview with the interview with the Daily Beast said Mitt Romney will likely struggle with women, because his father was "born on a polygamy commune in Mexico."
The governor reportedly went on to say Romney is going to have trouble attracting Latino voters as well, adding that it was "kind of ironic given that his family came from a polygamy commune in Mexico, but then he'd have to talk about his family coming from a polygamy commune in Mexico, given the gender discrepancy."
We're now inside 200-days of the Presidential elections, but it sounds like Democrats are willing to go the extra-mile to blunt Romney's recent gains in the polls.
