Romney Captures Michigan
January 16, 2008, 8:10 AM
Mitt Romney has been taking a victory lap on the morning shows after his win in the Michigan GOP primary.
He says he's feeling "pretty darn good" after coming out on top but is "not making predictions" about what's going to happen in the states that haven't voted yet.
Of South Carolina poll-leader John McCain, Romney says: "We'll give him a run for his money."
Anything short of victory in Michigan would have left Romney's campaign on the ropes, after his losses to Mike Huckabee in Iowa and McCain in New Hampshire.
In Michigan, Romney had 39 percent of the vote, McCain had 30 percent and Huckabee 16 percent. No other Republican fared better than single digits.
Today, all the major Republican candidates will be in South Carolina, where voters go to the polls on Saturday.
