How much will we hear about sanctuary cities and mansions? Will we play “gotcha” quote with the candidates past statements on immigration. And will someone ask Romney what he meant in the last debate by: “If you hear someone with a funny accent, you, as a homeowner, are supposed to go out there and say, I want to see your papers. Is that what you’re suggesting?” (“Funny accent”?)
In all seriousness this is a tricky proposition for the candidates who have all frankly shown some “evolution” in their views ( some more extreme than others and some with better explanations for their shifts) and must balance their tough appeal on illegal immigration to the conservative base without going over the top and undermining their shot in Florida, for example, with a significant Hispanic population. (Notice, that Marco Rubio the powerful Florida Speaker of the House who was courted for months by Romney Florida chair Al Cardenas did announce his endorsement — for Mike Huckabee.)
