Iowans for Romney: Straw Poll one month away!
Excerpted from this post at Iowans for Romney
For those who have said repeatedly ......"I will worry about the Straw
Poll when it gets closer to August"…I say to you "It is almost
August!!!". The Straw Poll is one month away, and there is a huge buzz
in the air. The outcome of this straw poll in Ames will undoubtedly
affect the outcome of the Iowa Caucus, as well as the national
front-runners. There is still a twist: McCain and Giuliani aren't
going. McCain is legitimately too broke to fund a run at the Straw
poll, however Giuliani has a ton of money and yet he still doesn't
want to participate. Three observations: 1. McCain is struggling
financially, and thus is not going to attend the straw poll.
Rightfully so. He should not bother attending any other caucuses
either because the money isn't there. And as much as we try to ignore
the money factor, it is still one of the biggest indicators of
popularity. If people like you, they donate to your election campaign.
Simply put. And I think after August 11th, we may see McCain consider
to pay off the rest of his campaign debts and walk away.
