“To be perfectly honest with you, and candid, not being political, I will answer your question, I will let you know I voted for the cheerful one, Newt Gingrich,” Palin told Fox News early Wednesday morning, although she insisted that was not a formal endorsement. – The Hill
It wasn’t pretty.
Mitt Romney barely beat Rick Santorum in Ohio, the state called just before 1:00 a.m. EST. But it’s a win he badly needed.
Now the question is whether Rick Santorum can start beating the pulpit to get Newt Gingrich out of the race. It’s the only chance Santorum and religious conservatives have of taking it to Romney going forward, though the path to the nomination is tough.
Mitt Romney almost got beat by a guy who didn’t even file the right papers to compete in Ohio almost won.
Republican primary voters still don’t want Mitt Romney. But unless Santorum makes Gingrich an offer he can’t refuse, and on which Santorum may never be able to deliver, Romney’s going to eventually outlast his opponents.
What all this means for the fall is unknown, because we all may end up caught between gas prices, Netanyahu and Iran.
