I’ll be sure to re-post this Wednesday – after the Michigan results where Mitt Romney will come in second place with yet another “Silver medal”
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 01/11/08 Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney said Friday that Mike Huckabee has won his last primary.
Speaking via telephone with editors and reporters from the AJC, Romney said his campaign for the nomination remains strong and predicted that he will win Tuesday’s primary in Michigan.
From there, Romney said, he’ll make “a strong push in South Carolina,” and be competitive in the Jan. 29 Florida primary, all of which will lead to Super Tuesday and the Feb. 5 Georgia primary.
Huckabee, Romney said, is “taking a page from (Democratic candidate) John Edwards’ playbook” as “the guy for the little person.”
Huckabee bested Romney in the Iowa caucus and Romney lost to Sen. John McCain in New Hampshire.
Romney predicted that the South Carolina primary will come down to a fight between himself and McCain.
Huckabee’s Georgia communications director Shawn Davis dismissed Romney’s comments.
Considering Romney is trailing Huckabee in Michigan, South Carolina and everywhere we are competing, his comments seem to reflect a distressed campaign, Davis said.
I don’t see how his insults are going to improve his outlook here in Georgia.
