Romney Finally Wins
Posted on Jan 15, 2008
Mitt Romney has captured a crucial victory in Michigan. He had desperately needed to win in a big state. The outcome of the latest primary means Republicans have three proven candidates in contention for the nomination.
Romney throws an already confused race into disarray by becoming the third different candidate to win a state. He came in second in both Iowa and New Hampshire, and won in tiny Wyoming.
In a speech shortly after the last polls closed, he declared his victory “the beginning of a come back and a comeback for America.”
“Is Washington broken?” he demanded, to the cheers of supporters. “Can it be fixed? Are we the team to get it done?” His backers shouted “Yes!”
