Ex-GOP gov: Myopic Trump takedown could backfire

(CNBC) Attacking Donald Trump’s character won’t slow his march to the Republican nomination because his supporters accept his “warts,” Mitt Romney’s former campaign co-chair told CNBC on Friday.

Tim Pawlenty told “Squawk Box” he has “high regard for Romney,” but the former governor of Minnesota challenged the premise of Romney’s Trump takedown speech.

“The core of [Mitt Romney’s] argument was Donald Trump has character flaws,” said Pawlenty, who gave up his own presidential aspirations to support Romney in his failed bid for the White House in 2012.
