Mitt Romney Advised Against Overconfidence By Key NH News Outlet

Jun 15, 2011

In an editorial, the New Hampshire Union-Leader felt the need to rain some on Mitt Romney's post-debate victory lap after sensing he might be prematurely thinking about how he wants to redecorate the Oval Office.

An excerpt:

Like a smart candidate, Romney stayed in New Hampshire and did some retail campaigning on Tuesday. In the morning he stopped at Benson Lumber and Hardware in Derry. There, he chatted with Brad Benson, owner of the company. According to CNN, Romney had this to say to Benson:

"I will probably be back in four years. Only this time it will be a larger group and I will probably have Secret Service."

Governor, you won a debate, not an election.
