The media gave him Iowa, when it turns out Santorum took it. That part, the media didn't talk so much about. The perception was there.
In Virginia, the nomination rules blocked all but 2 candidates.
In Florida, who voted early, and was supposed to have half of its delegates not seated... well, that was just ignored.
Lots of hanky panky going on, not to mention Rove and machine badmouthing conservatives with the support of the MSM.
Both Santorum and Gingrich said essentially the same thing when they dropped out. The media had made their "Inevitable" choice and fundraising became impossible. After all, why donate to can candidate when another is perceived as the clear winner?
The Michigan Republican Party (MRP) Credentials Committee voted 4-2 last night to give Mitt Romney both of the state's at-large delegates, State Policy Committee Chair Mike Cox told MIRS today.
Cox was one of two "no" votes on the committee which met via telephone, along with attorney Eric Doster The "yes" votes included GOP National Committeeman Saul Anuzis, a Romney supporter, and MRP Chair Bobby Schostak.
That would put the delegate split at 16 for Romney and 14 for Rick Santorum, after each candidate won 14 delegates apiece in those divided by Michigan's 14 congressional districts.
As MIRS first reported on Wednesday, the MRP was delaying a final decision on the delegate split until after consulting with attorneys.
Cox said that according to the MRP rules, Santorum and Romney should each get one of Michigan's two at-large delegates based on their take of the popular vote.
"I supported Mitt, but the vote was clearly wrong," Cox said of the Credentials Committee. "It's kind of like Third World voting. We published rules and then we voted to change the rules."
