Romney Stages CPAC Comeback

Romney King

Frontrunner wins the conservative confab’s presidential straw poll.

Romney 38
Santorum 31
Gingrich 15
Paul 12

NY Times: “The Romney campaign was working aggressively behind the scenes for a strong showing, including busing students from colleges along the Eastern Seaboard to show their support.”

Whether Romney did this through organization or not, it is a great day for him. A loss to Santorum would have been more than a nick. That sound you hear is Boston exhaling. Of course, if someone had said a month ago that Santorum would finish this close to first, the reaction would have been much different.
