Low Expectations

Romney Camp Braces for Loss

Mitt Romney is taking a realistic approach to Tuesday's triple contest. The candidate's political director sent a memo to supporters Tuesday that was reassuring while striving to temper expectations for Colorado, Minnesota, and Missouri. "It has become apparent that Mitt Romney is the only candidate with the organizational strength and broad-based appeal to secure delegates in all remaining primaries and caucuses," he wrote. "Of course, there is no way for any nominee to win first place in every single contest."
