Congressman Randy Neugebauer Discusses Romney Campaign and Vice Presidential Picks [AUDIO]
On Monday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer talked with Chad Hasty and Rex Andrew about the latest going on in Washington.
One of the big topics Neugebauer talked about was Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's campaign. He said, in response to a caller's question, that the reason Romney is not going after Obama as fiercely as he did his opponents in the Republican primary is because Obama's numbers are slipping as it is, and that some of the stories coming out about Obama right now may lose their relevancy come election time.
"Right now, [Romney's] campaign feels like that their strategy is to stay on the same course that they're on, and I think the President has had to change his. You know, he's not talking about his record, he's not talking about all of his signature pieces of legislation, and the reason he is not able to talk about it is they're not popular.
Neugabuer also said that, in addition to Condoleezza Rice and Tim Pawlenty, he'd like to see Romney consider Rob Portman of Ohio, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, and Marco Rubio as potential vice-presidential candidates.
Neugebauer also talked about the current progress of the House's version of the Farm Bill, which will now be moving to the House Board. Neugebauer said that he was pleased at how the Farm Bill is turning out, and that a large portion of it is centered around crop insurance, which will be very beneficial to the farmers.
