Romney Can't Buy a Break, Literally
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Mitt Romney can't buy a break, literally.
After outspending Rick Santorum 4-to-1 and Newt Gingrich 3-to-1 in Super Tuesday states, Romney mustered six wins, including an important victory in Ohio. But he failed to win any states in the South and lost two of the three largest races.
"We are smiling and optimistic," a Santorum aide wrote in a message. "Very far from over," the aide said in reference to the larger race for the nomination.
Romney's performance on Super Tuesday bolstered his front-runner status, but it won't provide him a break from the campaign trail as Santorum received his largest single-day delegate bump yet and as Gingrich won his second primary in the South.
At this rate, the once-bogus suggestion of a brokered convention appears conceivable.
