A former Romney operative refuses to answer whether or not she discussed her controversial new Anti-Trump Political Action Committee with the 2012 GOP Presidential nominee.
The PAC, started by Katie Packer, is sending out Anti-Trump propaganda pieces in Iowa and plans on conducting other operations.
Reports say Mitt is horrendously frightened of the prospects of a Trump nomination…
According to Politico:
“With less than two weeks until the Iowa caucuses, a new super PAC has formed with the intention of taking down Donald Trump.
The group, which is called Our Principles PAC, is founded by Katie Packer, a veteran Republican strategist who served as deputy campaign manager on Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign.
This week, the group sent out mailers to Iowa voters attacking Trump, who polls show is in a tight battle with Ted Cruz in the state, where caucuses are to be held on Feb. 1. In a filing with the Federal Election Commission, the group has reported spending nearly $45,000 on mailers.
Packer has spent months in talks with Republican donors and operatives to gauge financial interest in an anti-Trump campaign.
Packer declined to say whether she had spoken with Romney about the group. The 2012 GOP nominee has been privately expressing worry to former aides about Trump’s ongoing lead in the primary.”
