Mccain And Romney's South Carolina Strategies

 

Round Two: [Elisabeth
Bumiller, The
New York Times
]: “Mr. McCain, who over the last seven years
methodically courted important South Carolina Republicans and showered them
with money from his political action committee, now has them on board to try to
intercept the attacks before there is major damage.”

 

Lowering
Expectations: [Jonathan Martin and Lisa Lerer, Politico]:
“Romney’s South Carolina
strategy amounts to being politically half-pregnant. He doesn’t want to raise
expectations in a state he likely can’t win, so he’s dashing off to Nevada midday Thursday
to compete in the lightly contested caucuses there Saturday.”

 

Unready for the Big
Stage: [Michael D. Shear and Juliet Eilperin, The
Washington Post
]: “But the race turns national after Saturday's primary
here, and none of the GOP candidates is showing signs of success in finding
broader themes to unite the party ahead of the fall campaign against Democrats”

 

Media Circus: [Klaus Marre and Andy Barr, The
Hill
]: “Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, lagging far behind
his opponents for the GOP presidential nomination in fundraising, has been very
successful in maximizing free media exposure and unconventional campaign
tactics to get out his message and jump to the top of the polls.”

 

Old Enemies: [Rebecca
Sinderbrand, CNN]:
“Karl Rove dismissed Hillary Clinton’s Michigan
primary win Wednesday, telling a group of Republican party leaders that her
victory showed signs of weakness.”
