Mitt Romney had a not so surprising sweep of wins last night in Wisconsin, Maryland, and Washington D.C. Romney easily won and now has a delegate count of 655. With such a large lead no other candidates stand a chance at getting the necessary delegates before the convention, yet Rick Santorum is still fighting in the race. Why?
If you ask me, I think it is because he is bitter. Rick Santorum has always come off as the candidate that was bitter. He was bitter when no one was paying attention to him. Now that people are paying attention to him, he is still bitter. In fact, he even cursed out a reporter recently on the campaign trail! People are quick to point out that this reporter is from the NY Times and that they are the head of the liberal press. That ignores the fact that the reporter is often part of the roundtable panel on Fox News Sunday and the Fox All Stars on Special Report.
I have said repeatedly I didn’t understand support behind Rick Santorum. I have also said he has no chance at getting Millennial support. The good news is, the race is effectively over. Mitt Romney is the nominee. Maybe Rick will get the memo, or maybe he will remain bitter that he was beaten and continue on. I guess that’s his prerogative.
