On Sean Hannity’s radio program just now the host asked Romney about Iowa. Romney’s response once again looked towards a long primary. He said “over time we’ve come to see the early states as the be-all-and-end-all… but this is a race to get 1,150 or so delegates.” He noted that the Hillary/ Obama race proved just how long this could go on for, especially under a proportional delegate system that the Republicans have now gone some way towards adopting.
He referred to recent polls from Iowa “that show Speaker Gingrich’s numbers have come down significantly.”
“I’d love to do well in iowa; i’d love to win iowa,” he concluded. “But I’m in this for however long it takes to get the nomination.”
