Romney transition website briefly posted

Nov. 8, 2012 at 4:46 PM

WASHINGTON, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- A U.S. blogger captured screenshots of a briefly live website apparently created by Mitt Romney's staffers in case he won the presidential election.

Taegan Goddard, proprietor of the Political Wire blog, said the transition website created by the Romney campaign was apparently put online inadvertently and was only available for a few minutes before it was removed, NBC News reported Thursday.

Goddard was able to take screen captures of the site before it was taken down.

"I'm excited about our prospects as a nation," reads a quote on the main page attributed to the Republican nominee. "My priority is putting people back to work in America."
