In 2002, Romney Ran Away From The Word “Republican”
In 2002, while running for Governor of Massachusetts, Romney courted independents and Democrats by running away from the (R) next to his name. In this 2002 segment unearthed by BuzzFeed, which aired on WBZ4 in Boston, Romney said: “It’s always a burden to run with ‘R’ for Republican after you name,” and “I think it’s very clear, I think, to people across the Commonwealth that my R doesn’t stand so much for ‘Republican’ as it does for ‘reform’.” Several short soundbites from this clip previously been posted online in January, but this the first time the entire segment from 2002 is available online.
