Romanoff Says White House Offered Job to Leave Race

Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff (D) confirmed that White House deputy chief of staff Jim Messina "suggested three administration jobs that would be available to him last September if he dropped his plans to run against U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet," Politico reports.

Ben Smith notes the admission shows governance "at its most transactional. But it's also a sign of something else: How little Establishment Democrats like Romanoff fear the White House. It's a remarkable act of defiance."
