(LONDON DAILY MAIL) — Presenting hard-headed calculations on the morning after Super Tuesday, Romney advisers at their Boston headquarters made an explicit case for what their candidate is not yet prepared to say: the Republican race is over and Mitt Romney has won.
“All we have to do is keep doing what we’re doing and we can get to the nomination,” said one adviser. “Those guys, it’s going to take some sort of act of God to get where they need to be to win the nomination.”
To win, Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich would have to “bend the laws of reality” and “overperform in ways that they have so far not performed in any way, shape or form”. It was clear that “we are going to be the Republican nominee”.
