Rick Perry’s team is out with a press release accusing Mitt Romney of wavering on whether he supports the White House’s education policy. Romney recently praised the Obama administration’s Race To The Top program, which encourages states to set common standards for math and reading curriculum. But Perry’s camp dug up footage a Town Hall in June in which Romney told a woman concerned about a national curriculum that he would “fight it to the ‘n’th degree. It’s against the Constitution and it’s wrong for America.”
Romney has been putting out a ton of press releases attacking Perry on Social Security in advance of Thursday’s debate, priming the pump for it to be a major topic. With this release, it looks like Perry is trying to score a question on education to launch a new attack on Romney.
