Reporting from Eagan, Minn. —
Mitt Romney — famous for his perfect coif — was glitter-bombed Wednesday, but he soldiered on as though it was an acknowledgment of his victory Tuesday in Florida, where he dealt former House Speaker Newt Gingrich a double-digit loss and he swept 50 delegates.
"I'm happy for the celebration, this is confetti. We just won Florida!" he said, after calling out the protester from the group Occupy Minneapolis who had showered him with glitter shortly before he took the stage at a golf cart and shipping warehouse in the Minneapolis suburbs. "I've got glitter in my hair; that's not all that's in my hair, I'll tell you that. I glue it on every morning whether I need to or not."
Jetting across the country to Nevada, which will hold its caucuses on Saturday, Romney did not mention his GOP rivals and kept his remarks focused on Barack Obama.
"President Obama, he's not going to be seeing a lot of confetti. He's going to be seeing a job. He's going to be going on to the golf courses down in Florida. Time for him to get out of the White House. He can play golf all day every day."
