With Santorum and Romney headed for Idaho, National Review hopes for two-man race

The editors of the journal founded by conservative pioneer William F. Buckley Jr. say today in an article titled "Santorum's Turn," that they hope Rick Santorum will become the "principal challenger" to Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination for president.

Santorum will be in Coeur d'Alene Tuesday afternoon and will appear at a free event Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Capital High School auditorium in Boise.

"At the moment Rick Santorum appears to be overtaking Newt Gingrich as the principal challenger to Mitt Romney," write the National Journal editors. "Santorum has won more contests than Gingrich (who has won only one), has more delegates, and leads him in the polls. In at least one poll, he also leads Romney. It isn’t yet a Romney–Santorum contest, but it could be headed that way. We hope so."

Romney will also be in Boise, on Friday, for a $2,500-a-head VIP reception at the Grove Hotel, followed by a $1,000 lunch. Romney is expected to hold a public event as well, but his campaign has yet to release any details.

Mitt Romney is out of touch with reality. When asked about raising taxes for the wealty he said "The low income are being taken care of and the wealthy are doing just fine" He forgot about the middle class who are in a higher tax bracket than the wealthy! And Mitt expects me to vote for him? My momma didn't raise no fool Mitt!

Wish it could be a THREE MAN RACE.

Maybe FOUR if you add TERRY LABONTE.


Believe in yourself. At least you won't troll yourself in blogs.
