Did the RNC make a big mistake last fall? A new report by ABC News’ Jonathan Karl has many conservatives seeing red.

— Jonathan Karl (@jonkarl) May 9, 2013

Karl reports that this ad was put together by the RNC last fall but was “scrapped at the last minute because of objections from the Romney campaign, which was concerned the ad would distract from Romney’s efforts to focus on the economy.”

Regardless of whether or not the Romney campaign actually played a role in the RNC’s final decision, many conservatives are frustrated and angry with the RNC for keeping the ad buried at a time when the American public needed to know the truth:

Team Romney didn’t want to go after Benghazi because they thought it would screw up the economic argument?

A- Their economic argument SUCKED (well the way they made it did) and B- They couldn’t attack on two fronts? That was beyond them?

Romney objected to this #Benghazi ad so it didn’t run. Big mistake.MT @rickklein abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics…

— Jon Delano (@JonDelano) May 9, 2013

Per @jonkarl, the Romney camp nixed the RNC’s Benghazi ad. Maybe bc they thought they already had a win in the bag. Terrible, terrible call.

— Nick Jacob (@nicktjacob) May 9, 2013

I’d like a hearing where RNC staff are called in to explain why this #Benghazi ad never aired abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics… #tcot #GOP
