Obama Campaign Manager Discusses Election

Jim Messina, campaign manager for Obama for America, sat down with Mike Allen from POLITICO to discuss the 2012 race. The discussion touched on a range of subjects, and I would highly recommend it.

A couple of weeks ago, I argued that Governor Romney’s opposition to the Production Tax credit may have cost him Iowa. At 38:17 in the CSPAN video, Messina agrees with that view.

To be clear, I never personally believed that the PTC cost Romney Iowa, but saw this Daily Beast article on Election Day and found the argument thought-provoking.
