It’s the wire; less than a month ‘til ballot box time. Two candidates will enter but only one will survive and who gets to win is down to us. There are some big issues on the table for the next 4 years. Each candidate has their own approach to each of these challenges facing our country. Let’s review their positions, from the standpoint of our generation. (P. S. Worth noting that both parties use code words, words that sound innocuous but have very significant meaning to their base. Be sure to go and read the original plans so you get the exact meaning):
My experiences during the Florida Primary left me doubting a Republican win for the Presidency. This morning, Romney reassumed his role as the inevitable nominee. Newspapers called it his “Big Win” in Florida. Taking 41% of the vote in the Sunshine state, with a close Iowa and New Hampshire in the bag, his victory in the primaries does look more likely than any of the competing candidates. But a win in the White House might not be in the cards.

Romney needs to win back some serious points today. His inevitable victory has been overshadowed by Newt’s rising poll numbers. Now, Romney needs to proactively gain back his lead if he wants to win South Carolina.

With only hours separating South Carolina from the beginning of the Primary, candidates courted Charleston like the prettiest girl at the dance. Every single presidential hopeful, and even the less hopeful, came to the Holy City and engaged local voters in a spectacular rush of politics that won’t happen again for 4 years. Many of the candidates addressed SRLC in the morning and then went on to run rallies and events across the city.
Besides giving candidates yet another platform to interact with South Carolina voters, SRLC will give out-of-state influences the opportunity to affect the primary. The Southern Republican Leadership Conference draws not only other Southern states but participants from across the U. S. who want to watch the process and interact with nominees.
