Washington, Nov. 22 (ANI): A top adviser to failed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has basted members of the party for deserting him after election loss to President Barack Obama.

Dan Senor accused Republicans within Romney's inner circle of being 'fair weather fans, all too eager to throw him under the bus' only days after his defeat.

Speaking on MSNBC's 'Morning Joe', Senor called the trend 'stunning', before taking aim at unnamed Republican officials who he said sought to cozy up to Romney when they believed he was on his way to win over Obama.

According to the Huffington Post, Senor described a particular campaign rally in Cincinnati in the days before the election.

"Tens of thousands of people, you could feel the energy, a hundred top-tier Romney surrogates were at the event," he recalled.

"I'm backstage with some of them-I won't mention their names-but they're talking about Romney like he's Reagan. 'His debate performances were the best performances of any Republican nominee in presidential history. He's iconic,'" he said.

"They were talking about him because they believed he was going to win in four or five days. And in fact, some of them were already talking to our transition to position themselves for a Romney cabinet," he added.

Senor claimed that that all changed within days of Romney's loss.

"They were on television, it was unbelievable, it was five, six days later, absolutely eviscerating [Romney]," he said.

While Senor took issue with the level of loyalty among Romney's surrogates, he also admitted that the GOP needed to work to avoid repeating the failures of 2012. (ANI)
