It appears that Missouri Governor Matt Blunt was the only elected governor who took the time off from his constitutional duties Monday to dial for dollars for newly-announced presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts.
An article in today's Washington Post mentions several former elected officials, but Blunt is the only one mentioned who still holds office. This description was given of the work being done by Blunt and others who gathered at Romney's behest:
The politicos and fundraisers hit up friends and colleagues, and many of them wrote their own checks to contribute to the day's total. Less than four hours into the effort, Romney had surpassed his goal of raising $1 million; 90 minutes later, he announced that more than $2.5 million had been collected and urged callers to "keep on dialing for dollars." The day's total included actual contributions and what a Romney spokesman called "signed pledges."
Hopefully, Blunt only called friends, which would allow him the opportunity to beat a hasty retreat to Missouri.
