• Time to rally around Romney

    The race for the GOP nomination has been long, rocky, interesting and perhaps an exercise that will strengthen the campaign skills of former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney for the general election.

    But it clearly needs to end. The Gingrich and Santorum campaigns have now been reduced to juvenile games that only serve to weaken the GOP’s chances for victory in November. Both campaigns passed out Etch-a-Sketch toys at Romney’s event in Maryland – a desperate exercise in an attempt to revive their campaigns.

    It won’t work. Santorum is now 300 delegates behind Romney, and Gingrich doesn’t stand a chance at the nomination. In his attempt to capitalize on Romney’s “Etch-a-Sketch moment”, Santorum went so far as to imply that Obama would be a better choice over Romney in November.

    It would be wise for both Gingrich and Santorum to realize their chances at the nomination have vanished and get behind Romney as former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and FreedomWorks’ Dick Armey have done. There’s too much at stake in this election – from the economy to repealing Obamacare – to let this campaign drag on and drag down the GOP in November.

    This week I attended an event for RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, who was celebrating his birthday. Priebus asked that I continue my fundraising efforts to unseat Obama as well as speaking out about how Obamacare is wrecking our once great health care system.

    Happy to oblige.
