Romney Strategist: 10K Bet ‘A Good Moment For Mitt Romney’

Democrats can barely contain their glee at Mitt Romney’s $10,000 bet with Rick Perry, but the Romney campaign seems to think their candidate nailed it.

Romney spokesman Erich Ferhnstrom told TPM that the bet was “a good moment for Mitt Romney.”

“It made Perry look weak,” he said, adding that he suggested the $10,000 wager “because he knew Perry wouldn’t take it.”
