WASHINGTON -- After Wednesday night’s debate is over, both campaigns will send representatives into the nearby “spin room” to check, challenge and spin the evening’s proceedings their way.
But the spin game will be an hour and a half old by that point, judging by the campaigns’ plans to start the process right when the candidates take the stage.
Republican Mitt Romney’s campaign will respond to charges lodged against him via Twitter. Where longer responses seem necessary, they’ll link to Tumblr, a spokeswoman said.
President Obama’s campaign will also fact-check by tweet. Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter hopes for a multiplier effect, as the campaign attempts to deputize the president’s supporters to spin the people in their networks.
