Romney to declare victory Tuesday in New Hampshire
Even though this Tuesday’s primaries are in Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Delaware, and Rhode Island, Romney will hold an election-night victory party in…Manchester, New Hampshire. Why New Hampshire, when Pennsylvania is not only a big prize in terms of delegates but one of the perhaps three most important swing states in the general election?
Because to the campaign, New Hampshire is the logical place for Romney to declare victory in the long primary season. “Gov. Romney kicked off his 2012 presidential campaign in New Hampshire,” says a member of the Romney team. “Tuesday will mark the semi-official end of the primary campaign and Romney will become the presumptive nominee. The campaign will come full circle in New Hampshire.”
Romney has titled the New Hampshire evening, “A Better America Begins Tonight.”
