    A great showing for Romney? He’s spent almost $12 million in South Carolina. Huckabee has spent zero.

    Ouch.

    BSR,

    Your comment is simply inaccurate and misleading. Romney spent 12 million across the country in the first quarter.

    This is good news for Mitt as the big question mark in everybody’s minds regarding a Romney candidacy is how will he play with religious conservatives. He’s already able to say to Hillary and Obama ‘Anything you can do I can do better.’ and that will play to the northeast and the west, especially to independents. Will Southerners rally to Mitt? That has been the real question all along, and this is good to hear.
