Mitt Romney Quitting?
CNN’s John King and Dana Bash suggest that Mitt Romney may be ready to drop his White House bid.
Romney vowed late Tuesday to press on, though top advisers acknowledged the delegate match was daunting.
“It is tough to saddle up this AM,” said one top Romney adviser who spoke only on condition of anonymity.
Romney has poured more than $35 million of his personal fortune into the campaign, and after a rough Super Tuesday faces a decision of whether to spend more. Several advisers said there was a plan, in place before the Tuesday votes were counted, to begin advertising in the Washington, DC and Baltimore markets. Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia hold primaries next Tuesday.
There are certainly some states ahead that he can win. Still, with Mike Huckabee emboldened by last night’s wins and likely to remain in the race, I don’t see an obvious path to the nomination. The question, then, becomes how much of his family’s money is he willing to spend chasing windmills?
