Romney’s early push paying off in Arizona
A quiet contrast to Michigan struggle
The fight for Arizona is being waged almost in stealth fashion. And although Rick Santorum is within striking distance of Mitt Romney, his campaign worries it may be too late for him to close the gap. More than 200,000 early ballots were issued weeks ago, well before Santorum rocketed back into contention with his trio of victories in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri. Romney’s campaign worked assiduously to contact and court those early voters in early February, guaranteeing the former Massachusetts governor a cushion of support.
