Romney on infighting: Nothing to see here

In an interview with Telemundo airing Monday night, Mitt Romney responded to reports that his campaign is plagued by infighting.

"I've got a terrific campaign," Romney said. "Our campaign is doing well." He added that there would be no staffing changes in the wake of a Politico report on complaints about top adviser Stuart Stevens. "My senior campaign people work extraordinarily well together," he said. "I've got a good team." Romney argued "these process stories really take away from what's really of concern to the American people." 

Romney also sharpened his differences with President Obama on foreign policy. He said in the interview that it was "wrong" for Obama to describe Egypt as a non-ally and clarified that his "red line" for Iran would be nuclear weapon capability. In a recent ABC News interview, Romney said his red line was that Iran "not have a nuclear weapon" -- the same line Obama drew -- blurring the distinction between their positions.
