'Maybe if I walk around the Daytona infield
with my ticket hanging around my neck, Republicans
will think I'm a regular guy' (Reuters)
Mitt Romney's already made it clear
he has no intention of seriously campaigning in Iowa. Now it sounds like he he's avoiding South Carolina, too. The Hill:
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) will skip a South Carolina forum for presidential candidates hosted by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), scheduled for Labor Day.
Romney will spend the day in New Hampshire instead, a campaign official said Wednesday; the former Massachusetts governor has concentrated heavily on winning the first-in-the-nation primary.
Five candidates — Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.), Rep. Ron Paul (Texas), former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (Ga.) and businessman Herman Cain — are slated to attend the Sept. 5 American Principles Project Palmetto Freedom Forum. DeMint organized it along with other state Republican officials and Iowa Rep. Steve King (R).
I wonder if Mitt Romney thinks he's running for president of New Hampshire, because clearly the only GOP that would nominate him for the presidency is the imaginary GOP sitting inside his head.
