“The president is talking about Medicare today. We want this debate. We need this debate and we will win this debate.”
— Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., campaigning in Nevada.
Romneyland is fired up.
The campaign headquarters of the soon-to-be Republican nominee has the air of a tech startup. Barebones furnishings, open spaces, lots of light streaming in and a layout that makes it hard to discern power structure.
Over here, a honcho sits at a conference table with his iPad and papers scattered in front of him barking into his cell phone. Over there, a worker bee sits in an office, quietly emailing away. (“She has real work to do,” the barking honcho would later joke.)
The campaign HQ is also unusual by campaign standards because of its relative calm and order.
