99 Problems But Money And Endorsements Ain’t Some

Between his extensive flip-flopping on social issues, his huge unpopularity in his home state, his religion, and his immigration position, former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) has a lot going against him in a presidential campaign. But it seems that he has no problems raising money or getting endorsements. He raised $6.5 million in a single day, and has won the endorsements of Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), a major player in a key early primary state, and of former Governor William Weld (R-MA), showing that he can win support among moderates as well as conservatives. I still think the odds are against him, and that DeMint, Weld, and his campaign contributors will all have worked for naught, but he’s doing better than I expected.
