After Mitt Romney’s unimpressive showing on Tuesday, the race for the GOP Presidential nomination continues to slog on with no clear end in sight. Which is good news, I guess, if you’re a Texas Republican because it means that your vote on May 29 will matter. And polls right now are showing a tight race here:
TEXAS (Rasmussen): Romney 32, Santorum 30, Gingrich 19, Paul 9
TEXAS (Wilson Perkins Allen): Santorum 35, Romney 27, Gingrich 20, Paul 8
Links via Kos. We’re all aware that the Romney machine has been spending tons of money along the way in a so-far futile effort to crush the opposition. He will no doubt spend millions more in Texas, and it looks like Rick Santorum will have some help from a number of sugar daddies as well. In other words, if you still listen to commercial radio, or watch live TV, be prepared for a relentless assault on your sensibilities as the airwaves get taken over by campaign ads. It may not be as all-encompassing as the Obama-Clinton fight of 2008 was, but it will certainly leave you feeling a lot dirtier afterward. Prepare yourself now, before it’s too late.
