Hawkeye GOP: If McCain Loses - Who Wins
Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye GOP
Like rats leaving a sinking ship. In September, Senator Grassley called
John McCain the frontrunner, but things have changed. These departures
may not sink the campaign by themselves but they certainly can't help. As it
relates to the Iowa Caucuses, Nelson is a native Iowan so his loss especially
hurts McCain here. It will be interesting to see what happens to McCain's
local team. This grassroots guy will be watching, Ed Failor Jr.,Chuck Larsen,
Karen Slifka and Marlys Popma. When they start jumping ship it will truly be
over. Maybe it doesn't matter that McCain is skipping the Iowa Caucuses.
The real question is when will McCain drop out. Will he drop out before
the Iowa Caucuses or after.
