Mitt Romney pulls it off - putting a pretty tight lid on talks of a brokered convention and a last-minute entry into the GOP field. Indeed, he’s a lot closer to the nomination today, but it’s unclear how long until he can unequivocally claim to be the GOP’s man against President Obama. In the next few days, expect Newt Gingrich to get back into the headlines and give Romney a run for his money. Rick Santorum, meanwhile, is a wildcard whose role on Super Tuesday is hard to tell. But he’s not going anywhere and still a force to be reckoned with. We’ll talk with Santorum’s Communications Director, Hogan Gidley, to get answers (all the more notable since Santorum cancelled his network TV appearances this morning).
