Can Anything Stop Mitt Romney?

Can Anything Stop Mitt Romney?

After a narrow victory in the Iowa caucuses, former Massachusetts Gov. Romney won the New Hampshire primary decisively, making him two-for-two in the GOP presidential nomination process. Romney, who ran for president in 2008, has long been a top-tier candidate. However, his front-runner status has been threatened multiple times by the rise and fall of a series of “non-Romneys” throughout the campaign, as the Republican’s Party’s conservative wing resists backing the moderate candidate. Winning in both Iowa and New Hampshire has boosted Romney’s momentum into South Carolina’s January 21 primary, but his rivals refuse to back down yet. Here is Debate Club’s take: Can anything stop Mitt Romney?
