Reader to Republican Presidential candidates—stay in race!

Yesterday reader Greg sent me this message.  Frankly I too have been so snookered by the media every time they give the delegate count and tell us that no one can reach Romney.   Get out, get out, get out goes the media mantra in favor of the “moderate” politician.  Now, have a look at this website that tells us how many states still need to vote, including Maryland!   We all want (and deserve) a chance to vote for the candidate of our choice!

And, besides, by continuing the Republican competition we not only have more time to consider our positions on the issues, but our issues stay in the forefront of the news.

Here is Greg:

Concerning the Republican primary election on April 3, Maryland matters, for a change.

Why? Because the nominee needs 1164 delegates to win the nomination. The left wing news media is saying that Gingrich, Santorum, and Paul should get out of the race because Romney is already half-way to winning the nomination, but here is the truth: a candidate needs 1164 delegates to win the nomination,  but there are still 1268 delegates unclaimed, more than enough to win the nomination.  [oops! readers I messed with Greg’s numbers when I posted this the first time!—ed].

If I were Newt, or Rick, or Ron, I wouldn’t fold just yet, California has not voted yet, Texas has not voted yet, New Jersey has not voted yet. Maryland has not voted yet.

The point that I am trying to make here is this: Vote for the candidate that you think is the best candidate.

By the way, you might want to bookmark this website for dates of some very big primaries ahead.

  1. On the Jay Leno show (?) Ron Paul made the point that *if* no one gets the necessary number of delegates on the 1st round of voting, then on the 2nd round, the delegates are no longer bound, and can vote their own choice. In other words, in a ‘brokered’ convention where no one wins in the first round – all bets are off … even Ron Paul could win.

    Hence, Maryland, and everywhere, it is important to vote for delegates as well as voting for the nominee.

  2. I would like to hear from all the GOP candidates as to whether they endorse the referendum against in-state tuition for illegal aliens that will be on the Maryland ballot in November.
