One reason that happens is because the Milquetoasts have the nomination sewn up by the time they get to the Texas Primary.
Texas should be the First Primary. We deserve a big say in who the nominee is, because we are the ONLY large state that guarantees electoral votes for the Republican candidate.
And in just my opinion, I blame Huckabee for Thompson dropping out.
I don't care to revisit that whole mess, and I'm not trolling.
