During the Iowa caucuses Tuesday night, we reported on a tweet sent out under Ron Paul’s username and directed at fellow Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman.
“We found your one Iowa voter, he’s in Linn precinct 5 you might want to call him and say thanks,” it said.
The message was deleted from Paul’s account shortly thereafter, and then put back up almost as quickly. Huntsman hasn’t responded under his own username.
Wednesday morning, CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien questioned Paul on the message, quoting it to him and asking if he sent it.
“Well, I didn’t quite understand even what you just read, but obviously I didn’t send it,” Paul responded. “I haven’t talked about Jon Huntsman in a long time, so I don‘t know what’s going on there.”
There's a time and place for braggadocio and saving face, but I don't consider this one of those times. An amateurish mistake by the campaign, IMHO.
