Mitt Romney Press Availability At The Airport Tarmac in Atlanta, Georgia – February 8 2012

Mitt Romney spoke with reporters at the Atlanta airport about his loss in three state caucuses and primaries the previous night. He also talked about the rule included in the 2010 health care law that compels most employers to cover contraceptives and other preventive services in health insurance plans.

He told reporters in Atlanta that his recent loss in three state caucuses and primaries was “not good,” but that he would still be able to pick up delegates and win the nomination “if we do our job right.”

Romney also responded to criticism by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney over the Obama Administration’s contraception rule. At a White House press briefing, Carney called it ironic that Romney was attacking the President over this issue since a similar policy was is in place in Massachusetts when he served as governor. Romney responded in this news conference that the state law was in place before he became governor and fought to get it removed.
