It’s open season in the battle of the dueling war rooms. Rick Perry’s campaign was quick to circulate an e-mail today that’s been making the rounds within the campaign of another presidential contender – Mitt Romney.

Perry’s press team sent reporters an “In Case You Missed It” e-mail originally sent from the Mitt Romney “War Room” to a list of undisclosed recipients.
