Don’t let Mitt Romney’s campaign fool you into thinking this race is over because Mitt Romney needs this race to end tomorrow. The reality is simple: the Romney math doesn't add up and he will have a difficult time getting to a majority of the delegates.
His campaign is also running out of money and voters are beginning to see Mitt Romney for what he is: a Massachusetts moderate who has flip-flopped on almost every major issue.
Before the 2012 race even started his surrogates were fighting to frontload the nominating calendar with states favorable to his campaign so they could quickly close out the opposition. Because the longer the race continues the more time his opponents have to highlight his real record as Governor.
Our campaign on the other hand has been gaining steam since our kickoff Iowa win and winning in states Team Romney thought they would win. Big Picture: Rick Santorum has now won in Iowa, Missouri, Colorado, Minnesota, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Kansas. In addition to the states where he's won, Rick has also picked up delegates in states from Vermont in the East to Washington in the West -
important to note, because it proves support for his candidacy is nationwide.
The latest New York Times/CBS Poll reinforces our nationwide appeal, with new numbers out this morning showing Rick with a 34 to 30 lead over Mitt Romney, and Newt Gingrich trailing in the low teens.
And now the race for the nomination is moving towards primaries and caucuses that are more favorable terrain for Rick Santorum. With states such as North Carolina, Indiana, Texas, Kentucky, etc. having to still cast their votes.
To make sure our supporters see the race the way it really is, not the way the Romney spin machine would like you to see it, our team has drafted a memo
explaining these very things. I hope you will take a moment to visit our website and read the memo
. You‘ll see our campaign momentum is growing and the contest is moving onto more favorable ground.
With additional wins in the upcoming contests and the race coming down to Rick Santorum, a principled conservative and Mitt Romney, a flip-flopping moderate, we feel good about our chances and are confident in a Santorum path to victory!
Mitt Romney's campaign knows this and is now relying on their DC lobbyists and deep-pocketed Super PACs to help them raise $25+ million more to help them fund the race through the convention. Money they didn’t expect to spend because our campaign has surged!
