Romney is In!

Jonathan Garthwaite is reporting some terrific news for Salem Radio and Townhall.com's scheduled Presidential Debate:

The Republicans will get a chance with our planned Salem Radio and Townhall.com debate. It is expected to be Florida's first nationally broadcast presidential debate – and Mitt Romney is in.

Mitt Romney deserves a lot of credit for being the first candidate to agree to participate in this scheduled debate. This really says two things about him:

1. Romney gets the new media. By agreeing to participate in this scheduled debate (which would include a straw poll at Townhall.com), Romney's campaign is showing they realize the world is changing -- and that Republican candidates will have to use the blogosphere, the net, and talk radio, to get their message out to the voters.

2. Romney gets conservatives. This isn't MSNBC. By being the first to agree to participate in this debate, Mitt Romney is helping support the conservative movement and the conservative blogosphere.  And he is also showing he is willing to take questions coming from a conservative perspective.

As Jonathan writes:

Romney is the first candidate to commit to the debate. He and his campaign understand that the road to the nomination goes through the conservative base of freedom loving, family-oriented Americans. The Salem Radio Network and Townhall.com reach millions of these voters each week.

Kudos to Governor Romney's campaign for being brave enough -- and forward-thinking enough -- to be the first in.
