FoxNews is reporting that after the “Super Tuesday” results, backers and supporters of Rick Santorum are pressuring former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to drop out of the race.
According to Stuart Roy, who is an adviser to the Red, White and Blue Fund – which supports Santorum, ”With Gingrich exiting the race it would be a true head-to-head race and conservatives would be able to make a choice between a consistent conservative in Rick Santorum or Mitt Romney.”
4 Candidates – 1 Candidates = 2 Candidates?
It appears that the Santorum supporters have forgotten basic mathematics. With Gingrich out of the picture, it would leave a 3-way race with Santorum, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.
Regardless of an individual’s personal opinion of Dr. Paul, one must still acknowledge that he is still in the race, he is still on ballots (Santorum & Gingrich were NOT on Virginia’s ballot), and he deserves the same level of respect as the other candidates in this contest.
