This morning, Mitt Romney had more delegates than John McCain. Following today’s primaries, Romney’s lead has grown even larger because Nevada has more delegates than South Carolina and Romney won a larger proportion of the vote in NV than McCain got in South Carolina. Naturally, the press is declaring this a big win for McCain. I just saw Howard Fineman explain that “there is no longer any strong candidate in the race” to oppose McCain. Nobody but the guy who’s leading, that is.
I feel Hugh Hewitt’s pain.
