NH Romney surrogate tells us to settle for his candidate.
Via CNS (via Hot Air) comes this ‘argument’ from NH Romney supporter and state Senator Gary Lambert. To summarize it, Lambert wants us all to sit down, shut up, and endorse Romney despite the fact that Lambert himself is tacitly conceding that Romney does not share conservatives’ principles and beliefs. No, really.
In an RedState exclusive, we’ve obtained a copy of the latest salvo in the GOP 2012 Presidential primary — “Not Romney“.

Romney still leading, Huntsman out of the Hunt in New Hampshire?
Three quick polls of New Hampshire came out this week to try to measure the effect of Iowa on New Hampshire. Predictably, the top three of Iowa are now the top three in New Hampshire. This matters most to the one candidate that put nothing into Iowa and everything into New Hampshire: Jon Huntsman.

Newt Gingrich Shows He Can Throw a Directed Punch
The fear is that Newt Gingrich can not throw a targeted punch at Mitt Romney, that he is only capable of a crazy melee. Today, Gingrich is proving his critics wrong.

I can confirm from the ground that most everyone thinks Mitt Romney is going to win, but there are a heck of a lot of engaged evangelicals on the ground today doing last minute work to help Santorum and also to stop Romney. If Santorum wins, a lot of people will | Read More »

Mitt Romney Didn’t Just Give Planned Parenthood Money, He Gave Them Extra Power
