Mitt Romney was asked at the debate whether he was a member of the Tea Party.
“I don’t think you carry cards in the Tea Party,” said Romney. “I believe in a lot of what the Tea Party believes in.”
Romney the extolled Tea Party issues such as cutting spending and keeping government small, and extolled his own economic plan.
“So if the Tea Party is for keeping government small and spending down, and helping us create jobs, than I’m for the Tea Party.”
