Romney showing in Virginia encourages Obama
"I don't think you can look at any of these things and say he is showing any strength there," Obama Campaign Manager Jim Messina said. "You can't lose independents and middle-class voters in every state but your own and think you are showing strength."
But Romney's camp was encouraged by the big boost Virginia provided to his delegate count, and "at the end of the day, that's really all that matters," said Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, chairman of Romney's Virginia campaign.
"If people want to refuse to get behind Gov. Romney to prove some great ideological point, that's their right," Bolling said. "But that will directly result in the re-election of Barack Obama."
