And then there were three and a half minds left campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination: Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul.
Link to CNN livestream page.
Hosted by CNN's John King at the North Charleston Coliseum.
Im not a Santorum hater I would support all but Paul up there.
Romney’s stuttering is flat out killing me right now. Geez spit it out already.
Rick is acting too over strong. He is helping Romney more.
Newt said he has every right to change his mind for better ideas. Romney is a fake.
He knows he’s fading. It’s desperation. I like the guy but think the writing is on the wall.
You must be a RINO supporting RINO Gingrich. I guess you love those health care mandates.
Trying desperately to post! Santorum is done. He no longer exists for me. shame on you, Rick. Shame.
Like Herman Cain?
Keep the faith!!! it’s not over yet. Gingrich is doing great considering the immense pressure. Shows he is a true leader and strong man. Santorum is an ah and so is Mitt.
He always has.
Rick did look like he wasn’t going to make it thru his rant about Newt...yep, like he was about to cry...sheesh that was too obvious something going on within the guy. I don’t think he wanted to go there but did.
Santorum needs to do something other than what he’s doing...not sure I know what that is because he keeps trying to do other than he is....he’s a softball player and it’s hard for him to play hardball IMO. Just too mild mannered.
Yes, we all know its a media hatchet job, and slimy and smarmy. And you may like Newts debate comeback. (he’s a great debater for sure) But out in America, this story is not playing well for him. I’d love to see Newt as president. But the too much baggage is starting to stick. Having a six year affair in your wifes bed, and wanting an open marriage is alot for our socially liberal society.
8:55 PM RICK SANTORUM You just shot yourself in the foot! Please exit right.
Mitt is embarrassing himself talking about how Newt was only mentioned once in Ronald Reagan’s diary.
LOL. That forgetful imp must have flown out of Rick Perry and into Mitt Romney. He just lost his train of thought and looked to Gingrich to help him. (Newt would not!)
You will really laugh at Santorum in FOURTH place behind even Ron Paul, in South Carolina . LOL!!!!!!
I think Santorum is just there to attack Newt and help Mitt. Will probably have a Romney/Santorum ticket.
Santorum is not coming across as one bit likeable tonight.
“Santorum needs to do something other than what hes doing...not sure I know what that is because he keeps trying to do other than he is....hes a softball player and its hard for him to play hardball IMO. Just too mild mannered.”
It’s sad that in this day and age someone who is a good man who loves this country is considered too mild mannered to be the POTUS.
Santorum is sweating because he is going to go down fighting! Newt and Romney are not real conservatives. it’s good to get them called out. Ain’t no perfect candidates up there, but santorum’s twice the guy the others are.
Romney really got flustered—he does when he’s challenged, and we DO NOT need that in candidate who has to challenge Obama!
