Former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile told The Hill she was “happy as a fly in buttermilk” about the photo finish between Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney in Iowa’s GOP caucuses.
Brazile said Santorum’s newfound strength will hurt Romney.
“He’s going to go after Reagan Democrats,” she said, referring to the blue-collar workers who moved from the Democratic to the Republican Party in the last 30 years. “This is good.”
When asked if that fight would dovetail nicely with the DNC’s effort to paint Romney as a ruthless millionaire who fired workers to make money, she smiled. “This is good,” she said.
