Bravo to Rick for his high teens %age! He beat crazy Paul too. I think he did well tonight.
He should definitely stay in the race. Romney will be trying to bring Gingrich done now, with over and underhanded throws. We need to see how Gingrich weathers this, and in a state that might be more favorable to Mitt than SC. We may really be glad we have an heir and a spare, as they say.
I loved 3 of the 4 speeches tonight, and Paul’s wasn’t that bad, though it went on forever. Santorum’s speech was so natural and great. It is very wrong to think he is hurting anyone. Votes for Santorum are votes for Santorum. Period. It’s an open race. Go, conservatives, go!
I think there’s a case to be made for Santorum to stay in, because he’s an additional (and possibly more harsh) anti-Romney campaigner, *and* Paul’s numbers will probably rise a little if Rick drops out.
