Mitt Romney Helped By Palin Not Running?
What does this mean for the other Republican candidates? It might help Massachusetts' own Mitt Romney overcome a perceived ambivalence towards his candidacy. The Herald quoted a GOP consultant Ron Bonjean on Romney:
"This puts Romney in a key position to race ahead and capture the nomination unless (Texas Gov.) Rick Perry comes out of his nosedive. This helps Romney solidify his position as someone people are leaning towards because of Perry’s missteps."
