AZ for Mitt

A blog dedicated to informing Arizonans about Mitt Romney and the campaign for the 2008 presidential nomination.

Friday, February 01, 2008

While maybe disappointed, I hope that none of you are discouraged over the GOP primary race right now. While some in the media think that it's over and McCain has all but won, I thought I would provide some perspective.

The current delegate count is McCain 97 and Romney 74 (althought some have it slightly different). To win a candidate must get 1,191 delegates. In other words, McCain needs 1,094 more delegates and Romney 1,117 more delegates.

To put that in more concrete terms, if McCain and Romney were spiders climbing your living room wall, trying to be the first to the ceiling, McCain would still be less than 8 inches from the floor, with Romney about one and three-quarter inches behind him with over 7 feet still to climb. The race is far from over.

In fact, while liberal Republicans have endorsed McCain this week--Rudy Giuliani and Arnold Schwarzeneggar--conservatives such as former Senator Rick Santorum and talk-show host Sean Hannity have endorsed Romney. And in a blow to former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, the Arkansas Republican Assembley has endorsed Romney over their former governor.

Romney is a turnaround artist, and conservatives are beginning to realize the nightmare of a McCain nomination. Still, a big push is needed before next Tuesday, and here's how you can help (from an e-mail from the campaign):

"The calls you make that connect you to voters could put Mitt over the top, they could mean the difference in determining our next president. Please join us during all or some of the following times by emailing "I want to win" to
Saturday, 1-10pm EST
Sunday, 1-8pm EST
Monday, Noon-11pm EST
We are calling so late because we will be calling states in other time zones. We will not call Eastern states after 8pm at night.
We’ve had groups signing up on our website and offering to help from San Diego, California, to Dallas, Texas, to Southern New Jersey, and tagging themselves as everything from Mensans to FredHeads to Grocery Store Owners to Cosmetologists for Mitt. Thousands of new contributors have flooded to the web to pledge their support in the form of a financial contribution.

All of this demonstrates the widespread support for Governor Romney and shows he’s the candidate who can unite the Republican Party and our nation.
Please join us be emailing "I want to win" to
Thanks,The Romney for President Team

P.S. If you are unable to make calls but want to support the Call at Home program, please consider making a contribution of $250, $100, $50, $25, or any amount you can afford to go directly to buying more Call at Home minutes. Or even if you plan to make calls, you may make a contribution to keep this program going."

Now, I strongly discourage you from making calls on Sunday. And even if you can only donate $5 or $10, every dollar means more television ads can be run. Additionally, you can contact family and friends in states that are having their primary next Tuesday and tell them why you support Romney. Here's the list of states: New York, Missouri, Arizona, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Utah, Montana, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Illinois, Tennessee, Alabama, Colorado, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Alaska, and North Dakota.

You can even have a personalized Mitt Romney recorded message phoned to someone. It will say their name (not all names are recorded) and you can personalize it to the issue most important to them (you get to hear it before it's sent in case you don't like it or want to change it).

We can make a difference.
