Update on Clint Eastwood: According to a senior Romney campaign official, asked if the actor will hit the trail soon for Romney-Ryan, as was suggested to me earlier today:
“We have used him before and would be happy to use him again. Everyone loves Clint.”
Although some might question the politically advisability of putting Eastwood again in the limelight, it would be in keeping with Romney’s MO to have the film star back out there, to stay the course, reward loyalty with loyalty, and not let the media or the Democrats dictate what he does.
The upcoming release of Eastwood’s new movie will, however, limit his schedule to some degree.
