Hey Mitt, this is the end

By Richard K. Barry

I was wondering when this might start to happen, and now it has. Fox News reports that Mitt Romney is starting to lose donors to GOP House and Senate candidates:

The Romney campaign is experiencing what some officials believe could be the beginning of a mass exodus of big money donors diverting their cash away from the Republican presidential hopeful and toward Republican candidates for the House and Senate races more likely to win in November, the FOX Business Network has learned.

The trend isn't at the acute stage, at least not yet, said one person with direct knowledge of the matter. This person, a major player in Romney's New York fundraising circles, confirmed to FOX Business that a few New York donors have backed away from financial commitments to the Romney campaign and instead said they will spend their money to help the Republicans hold on to the House of Representatives, and pick up seats in the Senate.

Yesterday on Morning Joe, Mark Halperin made the point that the most important thing Romney can do in the debates is do well enough to convince supporters that this is not the end, even if it is.

Speaking of which, what a great excuse for music.
