Posted on 02/03/2008 12:02:11 PM PST by freemike
Despite John McCain's building political momentum, Mitt Romney said Saturday he does not expect the Republican presidential nomination to be settled during the coming week and he is planning to continue campaigning beyond Super Tuesday.
The former Massachusetts governor said the number of states up for grabs, his prospects of succeeding in some of the 20-plus GOP contests that day, as well as a growing concern within the Republican Party about conferring the nomination on McCain give him reason to fight on.

So,, this is good news!! I hope Mitt means it! Time would really be on his side!!
Seriously,, the longer this can play out, the more people will be taking second looks!! I'm sending a donation tomorrow!!
I predict Romney drops out Wed. morning.
And I will enjoy that moment too...
Now if we only had a real conservative.
|I hope all three of them fight on after Tuesday...all the way to the convention with none of them having enough delegates to garner the nomination. Then, MAYBE, we could rid ourselves of this disgusting disease of liberal republicans and end up with an actual conservative nominee. Reject the three stooges: Romney, McCain and Huckabee.
that is my hope as well.
I would be for that myself!
Who would that be, though? I can’t think of anyone offhand. (No, not Pat Buchanan.) I’m not saying there aren’t any “actual conservatives” left that would make good strong Presidential nominees; I just can’t think of any right now.
|Fred Thompson, Duncan Hunter, Dick Cheney, Newt Gingrich, Mark Raciot...
I predict he will keep his word. He will do the math and if McCain does not have the needed delegates secured, Romney will stay in. Just to put my money where my mouth is I am zipping over to the Mitt website to make another contribution.
I could be wrong on my prediction.
He might wait until Wed. afternoon.
I’ll see your Wednesday afternoon and raise you...predicting he will not be out at all, any of this coming week or the week after.
Maybe we could DRAFT Karl Rove or Dick Cheney??
I’m not seeing any of those folks as strong candidates. Fred and Hunter would most likely have the same impact they had earlier — which is very little. Hunter particularly had no chance from the start.
Cheney, maybe, but he is a very divisive figure and he is a fixture of the Bush administration, and so carries a lot of Bush’s baggage, however unfair it might be.
Gingrich? Hmm, maybe.
He will be gone in one week. At the very latest!
|So you are saying one of the three stooges who can't gain any momentum from state to state can be a strong candidate...let's be real. The real reason none of the three has taken over the primaries is because they are terrible candidates.
Just imagine how p*ssed Juan McAmnesty will be if he has to campaign some more in the primaries and cut into the money he isn’t getting from the pubbie rank and file.
My primary is March 5th, I hope I at least have some reason to go to the polls.
I'm not a McCain fan but that's the reality of it. It's over Mitt.
You’re on. We’ll both know within a few days.
Fight on Romney!
If McCain is the GOP nominee, then Republican will get blown out of Congress. This race isnt just about president. It is also for one-third of the Senate and all of the House.
Liberals will come out to vote for... Democrats.
Moderates will come out to vote for McCain and... Democrats.
Conservatives will stay home and not vote for anyone.
When its all over, Democrats will have a filibuster-proof Super Majority in the Senate, and margins so wide in the House that the liberals will run amok.
Republican governors will fall across the country.
This is what McCain brings to the GOP ticket. This is his unseen legacy in the GOP.
