Foster Friess is a wealthy Republican who is infamous for sponsoring Rick Santorum’s campaign. He says that many things haven’t been “hammered” in the 2012 campaign because Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney have focused on attacking each other. He said that they are now ready to target Obama and that he hoped his “teleprompters are bulletproof.” He stated, shortly after, that he regretted making this statement. The Los Angeles Times reports:

Friess told ABC News that he regretted the statement immediately after making it.
