Last year, the Tea Party decided it would not endorse any of the Republican candidates for President. It seemed like the right decision at the time. Watching the GOP debates and primaries over the last few months, you might question whether or not that was a wise decision.
What we have today is four good men killing one another to see who will survive long enough to win the party’s nomination. The only reason Romney is the front-runner is because he and the PACs that support him have millions more dollars than the other candidates.
You’ll recall that Gingrich surged ahead of the others in Iowa shortly before the caucuses. Then Romney’s PAC and other candidates ran millions of dollars worth of ads and nearly destroyed Gingrich’s ability to stay in the race. If not for that, Gingrich may have won Iowa and would have gone to New Hampshire in a much stronger position.
