Republican Candidates Must do Groundwork to Win Nomination
Candidates must switch up their spending money strategy to build support.
Now that big bad Florida is taken care of, it’s time for the candidates to put the pedal to the medal a get a move it. But for the next month, the game of winning delegates will be more about personal contact than money….That is unless you can achieve personal contact by investing a lot of money, but you catch my drift.
For the Nevada, Colorado, Maine, and Minnesota Caucuses, the Republican candidates will have to wise about their moves and money. Caucuses are known to have fewer turnouts when compared to primary states. This means that those that have the most followers willing and able to go out and vote for them have a better chance of winning.
Let’s see who qualifies for that:
Well, Mitt Romney has followers I’m sure…I think. I know he has money though. That has to stand for something right? At least he’s Mormon though. Nevada has a pretty healthy Mormon population. His first stop is Minnesota, which is the state Michele Bachmann represents in Congress. No, she hasn’t endorsed anyone yet. But if she were going to do it anytime, now would be the time. I don’t get why she’s taking so long. Nobody’s going to want it after the Minnesota Caucus.
Ron Paul is catching the eye of some people as a possible runner up to Mitt Romney this month. This is largely because of his strong support (the bit of support he has) and groundwork. While his competitors were campaigning hard in Florida, Mr. Paul was getting a head start in the Caucus states. A wise move for him. If there were ever a time to pick up some delegates, now would be it.
Who knows what Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are going to pull. Mr. Gingrich just doesn’t seem like the type to do the groundwork and the meeting and greeting it takes to pull off success in these states. And Mr. Santorum, I have a feeling he’s about to bow out — but it’s just a hunch.
