On Thursday, January 17, 2008, Mitt Romney's assertion about lobbyists and his presidential campaign was challenged by Associated Press reporter Glen Johnson in Columbia, S.C.
Romney: "I don't have lobbyists running my campaign. I don't have lobbyists that are tied to my-"
Johnson: "That's not true, Ron Kaufman's a lobbyist."
The confrontation intensified as both persisted to make a point, culminating in awkwardness as Romney approached Johnson, still in front of cameras, after the public segment was completed.
