Watching Romney Shrink
The efforts of some in the media to keep Mitt Romney's hopes alive is quite amusing
. Although the AP has apparently changed the lede to this story, it originally read as follows
When early polls showed him trailing Rudy Giuliani and John McCain, Mitt Romney urged all listeners to watch his presidential campaign blossom over the long election season. On Monday, it burst into full glory after just three months.The former Massachusetts governor, still relatively unknown across the country, bested not only McCain and Giuliani in first-quarter fundraising, but posted a staggering $23 million....
Of which, a little over 10% was raised from one contributor: Mitt Romney.
Romney pointed to his total raised — which included a $2.35 million personal loan — as a measure of his political support. His two leading rivals raised lesser sums, with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani saying he raised $15 million, and McCain, the Arizona senator who is making a second run for the presidency, reporting $12.5 million.
