California Could End Up Deciding Republican Presidential Nomination
Megan Goldsby, CBS Local - San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) The Republican presidential contest remains unsettled, and California could be the state that finally decides it. Super Tuesday turned out much like a childrens birthday party everybody left with a prize, according to former California Republican Party chair Ron Nehring.
Everyone is going to stay in this contest throughout the month of March, said Nehring. Id be very surprised if anyone dropped out.
KCBS Doug Sovern Reports: Republican Presidential Nomination Could Be In California's Hands Even though he didnt land a knockout punch, Mitt Romney remained the front-runner and added to his already significant lead in delegates according to Bill Whalen with Stanfords Hoover Institution.
Youre going to hear a growing chorus of Republican insiders, and youre going to see more Republican leaders in Washington and elsewhere come out of the woodwork now to endorse Romney, and essentially try to tell the other fellas that they consider the race over, and its time to move on, said Whalen.

Texas Primary will not happen until May 29th.
Would not count the chickens yet.
California deciding anything is a scary thought.
LOL! and so true
How did one fox in a whole chicken coup decide what’s for supper?
I’m looking forward to it. For presidential elections, we always still have polls open and people voting long after the networks have called the election based upon returns in earlier time zones. I’d like it for once if the rest of the country had to wait on us.
And we're Newt country.
AND we have 172 delegates.
More delegates than Republicans? :)
No, we’re are not!, unless illegal grandmothers come out in droves to vote for Gingrich.
I’m in Cali and yes... God help us!!!!
The land of nuts, fruits, and flakes takes a perfectly good election, and messes it up, yet again. It must be a real uphill battle for conservatives there. All I can say is keep fighting, and keep the faith.

I can certainly understand the frustration of a California FReeper when it comes to feeling irrelevant in elections. Dont take this the wrong way but it seems to me that the Golden State has shown itself to be, just a tad, mind you wacky, fruity, leftist, bizarre, communist, psycho, Marxist, fascist, idiotic and brain dead all at the same time. And those are just the Republicans.
The Democrats are well, the English language hasnt come up with the appropriate words to describe them yet so lets just say their redeeming qualities arent quite as cute and adorable as those previously mentioned for their Republican counterparts.
We do not call elections early to make you feel irrelevant. We call elections early to let you know that we are ignoring you. So far you (not you personally, your state) havent taken the hint. We are hopeful, however, that eventually you will catch on and just stop voting completely.
To be fair, we are not trying to single you out. For years we have been trying to find a way to get Massachusetts, New York, Vermont and Maryland on Pacific Time so that we can ignore them as well. The logistics have been a nightmare though.
CA is a big prize. Newt’s the only one advertising here. Radio spots for the last two months.
The talk of CA being in GOP play (and not a shoo-in for the Democrats) interests me. What's going on?
Right now, Texas Delegates are allotted proportionately. The Texas GOP is trying to change it to winner-take-all. That would be great news for Newt.
And we’re Newt country.
AND we have 172 delegates.
Between California’s 172 Delegates and Texas’ 155 Delegates, that’s 327 Delegates for Newt.
Your Post #9 made me laugh. Thanks; needed it.

If it comes down to CA, you can bet Newt will be all over it.
Don’t forget that Reagan came out of California, and in fact the fruits and nuts had elected him Governor before that. So California is certainly not all bad.
Either Rove or Morris said they thought Romney would get only half the California delegates. I was surprised they were that pessimistic for their boy.
Curiously, Republicans are not allowed to vote for Democrats in the Republican primary this year. Makes it a lot easier to beat the Democrats that way.
Ah, FRabbit. Your posted reply is why I keep coming back to FR. It was worth reading over and over.
I was thinking of the general election (a long way away) not the primary.
I know we are fruits and nuts, but we have more rock ribbed conservatives here than many other states. We are drowned out a lot.
The difference between California 1972 and California 2012 are striking.
Reagan wouldn’t be elected Governor if he were to reincarnate and run today.
Hey! I’m in California and so is JimRob :-) Maybe we can throw this thing to Gingrich.
That was the California of 30 years ago. Things have changed for the worse since then. Where it went horribly wrong I can’t say, but it has gone horribly wrong none the less.
