When I first heard the news, I'll admit I was nauseated beyond belief. It really shouldn't have surprised me though....after all, Mittens has flip-flopped on numerous issues and to flip from being "conservative" to "liberal" is just another one of those moments for him I guess. I will state it right now, I WILL NOT vote for a McCain/Romeny ticket. I will just not vote if that is how the Republican Nomination turns out.
As far as the delegate count goes, here is how it works.
When Romney stopped “actively campaigning” he still retained his delegates. After the endorsement of McCain, they will be officially released.
When any candidate endorses, his delegates are released. But, one important note is that even though Romney will ask those delegates to support McCain they are not bound to do so. He has no “ownership” of them.
After searching the blogs and threads for Team Huckabee, I finally began to understand, along with many others, that this is not the end. This, in fact, could very well be a whole new beginning if we just keep the faith and continue to persevere!! If it's one thing I've learned by being a part of this campaign is that every time you strike out against Gov. Huckabee and you think you are about to bring him down......his supporters get stronger and stronger and align the Huckabee Army in position right behind Mike, if not a bit ahead of him trying to advise him by our wishes.
So, hold your head up high......continue to tell others about Mike and JOIN OUR TEAM for the fight!!! Our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren depend on US to lead the way.
