Mitt Romney just announced he's dropping out of the race. We have tried to stay away from saying a lot on the presidential race in this space, but we commend Governor Romney for his hard-fought campaigning and the courage of his convictions.
Now, on with the show- It's MAC! We all know Congressman Mark Kirk came out in support of Mac long ago. How will Mac's position as the de facto GOP nominee effect the GOP race, the Dem presidential contenders, and life here in the 10th District?
CLARIFICATION- I understand from the AP that Romney is reportedly "suspending" his campaign (is this different from 'dropping out'?). But no one comes back from the dead. Here's the quote from the AP report: "If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror," Romney will say at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.
Mitt's done. On with the Mac Attack!
