Romney 2nd in National Journal Rankings
If I'm John McCain I'm starting to look over my shoulder at Mitt Romney. In this month's National Journal 2008 rankings Romney moves up to 2nd from the 3rd spot. Chuck Todd writes:
Think Romney’s feeling better about that decision not to seek a second term? The sole reason we finally put Romney ahead of Allen is that Allen's '06 re-election is becoming a distraction. Plus, the more we hear about Romney’s financial network, the more we wonder if McCain’s going to have company in the $100 million circle. Between the Mormon financial network, his Bain Capital friends and his own wealth, it’s safe to assume Romney’s going to be among the top three candidates simply because of resources.
