Governor Mitt Romney campaigns in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. He is accompanied by Governor Charlie Crist, Senator Jim Demint, and Congressman Tom Price.

In 2002, the Salt Lake City Olympics were in ruins. I stepped in there, turned things around, and we had one of the greatest sports events in American history. Soon after I ran a campaign in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans over 2-1, and prevailed. My friends, I know how to run a strong campaign, and I have in the past. As President Calvin Coolidge once said, "The business of America is business". Let's get America back on track, both economically and morally. Thank you, and God Bless!

At a rally in Olathe, Kansas, Sam Brownback endorses Mitt Romney for President...

I actually considered entering this race myself. But when I saw Mitt enter, I knew we had a winner. I knew we had a man who knew business and could get this nation moving forward again. When you head to that election booth, vote for the candidate that has your best interests in mind, not special interests. Vote for Mitt Romney!

Mike Huckabee makes campaign stops in Kansas, Georgia and South Carolina, and makes appearances with Sen. Pat Roberts (KS), Gov. Sonny Perdue and Sen. Johnny Isakson (GA), and Lt. Governor Andre Bauer (SC).

Roberts says, in a speech in Kansas City, "Now isn't the time to take a risk with a more liberal Republican taking the nomination. We need someone with a true pro-family record, and I know that we have that someone in Mike Huckabee. When casting your primary or caucus ballot, please vote for the true Republican, Mike Huckabee!"

Mitt Romney campaigns with Terry Branstead in Iowa, where emphasizing his economic conservatism...

Ask yourself when voting which candidate will fight for you more, the taxpayer. Will it be the man who raised taxes over 87 times as Governor of Arkansas? No, my friends, it won't. It'll be the man who saved the Salt Lake City Olympics and put the state of Massachusetts on track economically. That man is Mitt Romney!
- Terry Branstead



After the speech, Mitt Romney flies to Florida and South Carolina, where he campaigns with Senators Graham and Demint as well as Governors Crist and Sanford.

What the hell?

electoraljew2, tmthforu94 is clearly cheating/going against the rules, because I took Grassley already.

Mike Huckabee garners important endorsements in Iowa, from Senator Chuck Grassley and Representative Steve King, and in Florida, from Lieutenant Governor Jeff Kottkamp. Grassley says--

"Iowans and Americans, there is a choice now. There is the Democratic party, which if elected will continue to push a liberal agenda that has done us no good so far. But who are we to support, if not them? After all, the Republicans have a choice as well. That is why I invite you to make the right choice, and vote for my friend, Michael Dale Huckabee. He is the best chance for conservatives to take on the Democrats in 2008."

Huckabee also begins to run advertisements in Iowa and Florida.

I'll also post the PMs on request.

Mitt Romney releases an attack ad on Mike Huckabee, calling him bad for the economy...

Mike Huckabee...he claims to be the conservative candidate, but lets look closer. As Governor of Arkansas, he signed into law tax increases 87 times as Governor. Now you tell me, is that the conservative way? Mitt Romney, a proven businessman with success in the private selector. He's true strength for America's Future.
I'm Mitt Romney, and I approve this message.

Mike Huckabee delivers a fiery speech in Michigan. He states the following:

"In response to the recent Romney Iowa campaign stop, I'd like to take note of Romney's own record. Yes, he had a very successful time running the 2002 Olympics, but running an Olympic event, no matter how successful, is hardly a qualification for political office. Certainly, Bay Staters didn't approve of Romney's own management of the state of Massachusetts. He was so unpopular that he didn't even bother running for a second term. At just 4 years, Romney has very little actual experience holding public office of any kind. Further, Romney himself doesn't have an anti-tax record, and despite running as anti-tax right now, refused to sign an anti-tax pledge while running for governor in 2002."

Mitt Romney chuckles with his advisors on Huckabee's latest attack.

"I'll be able to wash it away when I simply state that I didn't run for a second term to prepare myself as Governor. We'll have to distance ourselves from Huckster by simply comparing my experience in the private sector to his lack there of. Start digging on him on social issues. We know he's weak on crime, but let's find his other weaknesses."

Huckabee begins to increase his focus on his strong suit, social issues. He releases an advertisement on television in Iowa, South Carolina and Florida.

Mitt Romney claims to be the pro-family candidate in the race. He even started his campaign by stating that he is such. But is he truly a social conservative? In Massachusetts, while running for governor, Romney spoke of the need to "preserve and protect a woman's right to choose"--now, of course, he claims to believe in the sanctity of life. Mike Huckabee has pushed for pro-life legislation as governor of Arkansas and supports pro-life legislation now. As governor of Massachusetts, Romney signed a bill permanently banning so-called assault rifles, strengthening the position of Massachusetts as one of the top anti-gun rights states in the Union. Mike Huckabee was and is a strong supporter of the right to bear arms. Massachusetts is the only state to allow gay marriage, and Romney failed to stop it, while Mike Huckabee successfully pushed for a traditional marriage amendment in Arkansas. Who's the pro family candidate?

Mike Huckabee makes campaign stops in Tennessee alongside Lamar Alexander, Bob Corker and Marsha Blackburn. He then visits the campaign trail in Virginia, where he is endorsed by Representatives Rob Wittman, Eric Cantor and Frank Wolf. Huckabee continues to emphasize his strong record on cultural issues, but he is addressing economics as well.

In Texas, former President George HW Bush makes an official endorsement at the Presidential Library...

I've been watching this race closely, and I truly believe we have two honorable men running. However, I have known Mitt Romney for a long time, and knew his father very well. While I think Huckabee would be a fine President, I think Mitt Romney would go above and beyond the call of duty. His economic experience would bring America into a new era of economics, and I think we could rightfully take our place as the world's lone superpower under a Romney administration. I am proud to endorse Mitt for President, and I sincerely hope that everyone who wants a strong economic future for America will do the same. Thank you.
- George HW Bush


After this stunning endorsement, several more conservatives announced their support for Governor Romney, including Senator's John Thune, John Sununu, and Tom Coburn as well as Governor Jim Gibbons.



Later that week, Mitt Romney makes several appearences with the former President in Texas, then holds several town hall meetings with Senator Coburn in Oklahoma, with stops in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Fort Gibson, Marietta, and New Castle.
