The Arizona primary takes place on February 28, and is crucial for Mitt Romney: his lead has been gobbled up, first by Newt Gingrich and then by Rick Santorum, who, despite his camp's open hostility towards gay and women's rights, appears a viable candidate, at least in the caucuses. Rick Santorum's weak grasp of world events is also somehow not holding him back.
Also, let's not forget that the Michigan primary is also on February 28: Mitt Romney was born in Detroit and raised in Bloomfield Hills.
The 2012 Republican Primary has become a waking nightmare for Mitt Romney, who was the presumptive winner only a few months ago. Ron Paul was hot on Romney's heels in Maine, and Rick Santorum is actually leading in the polls, though voters still think Mitt Romney has a better chance of beating President Barack Obama in a real-life election.
Mitt Romney's campaign in Arizona just took a hit when Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu came out as gay while facing allegations that the threatened to deport his alleged illegal-immigrant ex-lover.
Expect Both Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich to focus on Rick Santorum: Romney wants to push Santorum back, and Gingrich wants to overtake him. Meanwhile, Ron Paul has called BS on Rick Santorum's fiscal conservatism. However, if we're honest, we must acknowledge that Santorum is not a policy candidate, but an ideology candidate.
That said, as long as Rick Santorum stays in the GOP Primary race, we can enjoy headlines like this. Does that make us mean people?
