Romney faces a bit of a dilemma. If as it appears he leaves SC for Nevada his rivals and critics will claim he’s “abandoned the South” and the idea of a Republican who can’t carry the South is as goofy as a Democrat who can’t carry the Northeast. On the other hand, if he plays to win in SC and comes in third or fourth( a real possibility) he’s lost the momentum of Michigan and perhaps given up a shot at Nevada which is worth 34 delegates. It seems he has chosen the former but will get grief from his rivals no doubt. He did after all spend millions in SC on ads and held almost 50 events there.
