Far Enough For Me To Call

CREDIT:

Well, they haven’t called the race yet, but based on the returns that have come in so far I don’t see how Mike Huckabee could possibly win. That said, McCain’s victory here clearly seems founded on Thompson and Huckabee splitting a similar constituency. Of course, that may continue to happen (Thompson and McCain are buddies, after all) in future southern primaries, in which case McCain may be in okay shape. Onward to Florida.

UPDATE: It’s official; McCain wins.
