Reporting from the New York Times has detailed that Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades used his connection to the gossip-monger to promote damaging material about former Speaker Newt Gingrich.
The Times notes that Rhoades and his staff “spent days dispensing negative information about Mr. Gingrich, much of it finding its way to the influential Drudge Report.”
It is also revealed that the Romney-Drudge connection was so tight that Gingrich’s staff “gave up” on getting their anti-Romney material linked on the tip sheet used by many in the mainstream and conservative press.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Rhoades forged an alliance with Drudge when Rhoades worked at the Republican National Committee, and was the “go-to Drudge guy.”
