First Thoughts on S.Carolina GOP Debate

George Wenschhof

While, Mitt Romney was the brunt of attacks all night, he remains the front runner. Newt Gingrich fared better than Rick Santorum in the contest to win the "conservative" vote. Texas Governor Rick Perry came across better and got in a good question as to when Romney is going to release his tax returns. But, Perry's days as a candidate are numbered. Texas Representative Ron Paul, remains a moon beam candidate, who has no chance to capture the Republican Party nomination for president.
