Romney to Take RNC Victory Lap
nationaljournal ^ | April 16, 2012 | Reid Wilson

Posted on 04/18/2012 12:22:21 PM PDT by Marguerite

Mitt Romney will take a victory lap before members of the Republican National Committee when the party meets at an annual event in Scottsdale, Ariz., this week

While Romney is not formally the party's nominee yet -- he has not clinched the 1,144 delegates required to secure the nomination, and two other candidates remain in the race -- party rules all but guarantee he will win enough delegates to claim the nomination on the first ballot at the GOP's convention in Tampa. Recognizing that reality, Romney and the RNC set up a joint fundraising account earlier this month to begin raising the big bucks it will take to compete in the fall.

And yet Romney won't be speaking to an entirely friendly crowd. While he has secured support from the bulk of the committee's members, at least two state party chairs support other candidates. A.J. Spiker, who heads the Iowa Republican Party, backs Rep. Ron Paul, while Georgia Republican Party chairwoman Sue Everhart is bound by party rules to back former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

We need to stop this nonsense and have closed primaries on the same day in all of the States.

That's the only fair way to do it.

“Just called the RNC to request removal from the mailing list. If you want to do the same, here is the number:

202.863.8500

When they asked why, I said the GOP has gone too far in pushing Romney on us and the conservative base has had enough, especially now with this meeting Friday between Romney and state Chairs for “victory lap” when, in fact, this primary is far from over.”

I called the #.

The young dude said that the primary is over Romney will be the nominee cuz Santorum dropped out.

I told him I would pass the message along to the GOP committee here in town.

Maybe he’ll just jump in Ann’s lap. :)

The RNC has just desfranchized ALL the Republican voters in 19 states out of 50.

What do you mean, Marguerite? My Rino friends, registered Republicans all, are thrilled with the RNC...as well as with Mittens Romney, their heir apparent.

Maybe you mean to say that the RNC has disenfranchised all Conservative Republican voters, that tiny minority.

Counting his chickens before they are hatched. I won’t vote for romney and I won’t vote for Obama.

Guess it’s a write-in for me.

I think we need to mount a HUGH write-in campaign for Newt and blow the secret underwear off Willard.

Call RNC and tell them what you think: 202.863.8500

The funniest tweet of the day:

Q: Why did Mitt Romney put his dog on top of the car?
A: So that Barack Obama wouldn’t eat it.

"“We need to stop this nonsense and have closed primaries on the same day in all of the States.” "

I wouldn't mind having say five sequential primary dates, with first voters being the reddest states, and the bluest states last.

The RNC didn’t get the message in 2008.
