Well, Romney’s out
Yep former Governor Mitt Romney has officially dropped out of the race for presidency.
“If this were only about me, I’d go on,” he said during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington. “I feel I now have to stand aside for our party and our country.”
He made the final decision last night, as he was preparing his speech, a campaign source said.
“This is not an easy decision for me. I hate to lose,” Mr. Romney said. “If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror,” he said during the conference. Members of the audience shouted, “No!” as Mr. Romney spoke.
Well, with Huckabee and McCain as the only two real republican candidates left (Paul being considered a possible libertarian ticket candidate), it will be interesting to see how this all shapes up. One thing to keep in mind is that over half of the delegates have yet to be awarded to any candidate so, technically, Huckabee still has a shot (however unlikely it may seem) to win this.
Remember: Huckabee has pledged to stay in this race until the end so don’t expect him to drop out anytime soon.
