Yesterday, we noted that the Romney campaign appeared to be trying to distance itself from controversial conservative immigration activist Kris Kobach, who had been serving as an informal adviser to the presumed GOP nominee. But when we spoke to Kobach, he denied this, telling ThinkProgress, “my relationship with the campaign has not changed.” He later told NRO that the campaign confirmed to him that he was still and adviser. But when Politico’s Glenn Thrush asked the Romney campaign again about Kobach’s claim that he’s still working with Romney, a spokesperson had, no comment other than to stand by the claim that Kobach is merely a “supporter,” rather than adviser to the campaign.
