Aide Who Helped Romney Not Offered Job

Brett O'Donnell, a Republican operative "who won plaudits for bolstering Mitt Romney's recent debate performances is not being retained by the frontrunner's campaign, an apparent victim of internal tensions over staff receiving too much credit for the candidate's comeback," Politico reports.

"After O'Donnell was identified last week as advising Romney and then highlighted in subsequent news accounts as being one of the reasons behind the former Massachusetts governor's improved debate performances, Romney campaign officials grew uneasy. O'Donnell received phone calls late last week from two Romney advisers... where it was made clear that there was severe discomfort about how his role was being portrayed in the media and that he ought to tread lightly."
