If for no other reason than to upset the establishment in Washington DC, I’m glad Gingrich won the South Carolina primary. The talk among the talking heads on television now seems to be that the establishment must devise a plan to stop Gingrich from winning Florida.
I’ve said it before, I like Romney but of the remaining choices, I have been rooting for Gingrich. When the establishment comes out and condemns someone, it makes me like them more. We all like to root for the underdog.
Newt has been elevated by winning the SC primary, and this ensures that the Republican primary continues on for a while. Let’s hope all the way to South Dakota!
Now the race moves on to Florida. Ironically, Florida is a state where the DC establishment lined up behind the wishy washy Governor Charlie Crist rather than the conservative Marco Rubio in the 2010 senate primary. We all know how that election turned out.
The GOP presidential race just got very interesting!
