Villanucci: Are you the best person to win the general?
Domenici: The general is going to be an extremely difficult election. The perception out there that somehow any of the five candidates can and should win the general, I disagree with strongly.
Villanucci: Who can’t win?
Domenici: I don’t know if I want to say particular names of who can’t win.
Villanucci: You obviously have a feeling on that. You said that not all of you can win, so somebody can’t, and you think you can. So, who can’t?
Domenici: Actually, I would even include myself in the group thatcan’t.
“Actually, I would even include myself in the group that can’t. I don’t think this is a sure thing by any stretch of the imagination. It is going to be extremely tough. So I, that’s why I don’t want to go in the negative. I’m saying I can win and I’m concerned with the perception I’m hearing that says any of these five can win. I don’t agree with that.”
Domenici goes even further in a news release distributed after the telephone call, and claims it is Allen Weh who "cannot win."
"He has alienated too many Republicans and voters across the board,” Domenici said in the news release.
