Pass the information (AKA Information FAUX news does not want you to know):

Mitt would not have done nearly as well in NH if he hadn't had his cousin Jon Huntsman run as a "straw" candidate.
Check it out the Huntsman have known Mitt since a baby. (Think the grandfather in Mexico with five wives) Huntsman fortune in intertwined with Bain.

Please excuse my leapfrogging off your post ....

The Establishment .... Republicans ..... Media .... Dems are having major “accidents” over Newt’s victory. They are talking about brokered convention and bringing in new candidates ...

Whoo Hoo! Now it’s up to us FReepers in Florida. Things are going to get really nasty from here on out!

Now we need Gov. Rick Scott, ex-Gov. Jeb Bush, Congressman Allen West, and Fl.Senator Marco Rubio in Florida here, to endorse NEWT!

It costs 8 million a week to buy into Florida’s media markets because it’s such a big state and encompasses 2 time zones.

The next debate will be in Jacksonville, Fl.

Newt’s going to need money big time! bttt

" Brit Hume just now essentially said as much, because Romney is the only candidate who showed strong in all three primaries so far. Gee, suddenly it seems as though winning SC is virtually inconsequential now. What spin....

Brit did not say that, I heard exactly what he said. YOU'RE the one who's spinning.

“THANK YOU RICK PERRY.” True. I liked him at the start but he just wasn’t going to cut it, and I think he was very honorable for putting country ahead of self and dropping out and endorsing Gingrich.

I think SC allots all delegates to the winner and I think there are 25.

Rick Santorum is on CNN - still delusional.

Some of the counties coming in right now.

Oconee, Newberry, Faifield, Richland, Kershaw, Lancaster, Charleston, Clarendon are Romney.

Everywhere else is Newt.

Strong Romney - Charleston, Richland, Kershaw,

Strong Newt - Saluda, Edgefield, Allendale, Bamberg, Dillon, Darlington.

Santorum is doing well in Lancaster, +20.

Like everyone else, CBC is projecting Newt as winner, and showing him with SC’s 17 delegates. So, it’s ‘winner take all’ and in one primary, Newt pulls ahead in the delegate count?

I was surprised that Hillsborough County went for Barry but the reason was all the blacks, that usually don’t vote. Hopefully this time they realize they are worse off and they didn’t get his stash therefore they won’t bother to vote.
