Like many Republicans, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy sees the presidential nomination fight as a two-horse race between former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Both men should improve their campaigns to ensure a victory over President Barack Obama, the California congressman said, according to The Bakersfield Californian.

Romney should show a better connection with the common man, McCarthy said. "He needs to stop staying in hotels and start staying with volunteers at every campaign stop. His job should be to take out the trash every day, and if that bag breaks, he needs to clean it up."

Perry, who recently launched a blistering attack on Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, should watch his words more carefully, McCarthy said. "What plays in Texas doesn't always play well nationally," he said.
