Romney flew home and is baring his Michigan soul. (Remember when conservatives were grumps and only Democrats cried? Ah, the good ole days.) His father ran for the presidency in 1968. If voters are 50 or younger they likely have few first hand memories of George Romney, but the family name still resonates. Meanwhile this poll shows McCain, pre-NH, already with a nine point lead over Romney and Huckabee nipping at his heels. This may explain canceling the SC and Florida media buys. As a Bain executive, he certainly learned not to throw money away. His campaign did announce the result of their call day which garnered $5M but only $1.5M for the primary. It was not clear whether these were pledges or real money received. UPDATE: Spokesman Kevin Madden said that the amounts were a mix of pledges and contributions but said an exact breakdown would not be available until tomorrow. He also said that other than the halt on media buys in SC and FL there are no other budget/cost saving measures being taken.
