Romney to run “significant” ad campaign in California

 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney plans to run a “significant” level of television ads in California and other states that vote Tuesday in essentially a national primary, aides said Thursday, signaling a willingness to aggressively try to derail Republican front-runner John McCain.

In last night’s debate, Romney stressed his conservatism, while highlighting McCain’s repeated deviations from the GOP base.

“There are a number of pieces of legislation where his views are out of the mainstream, at least in my view, of conservative Republican thought,” Romney said. “I’d also note that, if you get endorsed by The New York Times, you’re probably not a conservative.”

  1. James says:

    Many of us welcome having a conservative choice in this race. There is not a dime’s worth of difference between Barack Hussein Obama, with the most liberal voting record imaginable, McCain’s good buddy Hillary, or McCain, himself. Mitt Romney offers the only real choice here.

  2. Elizabeth says:

    Great news! We need this good man to stay in the race and offer Americans a viable choice.

  3. Ben F. says:

    As we know, Dr. Dobson has never been politically involved like Robertson and Falwell, and therefore it is even more telling when he says:

    “Speaking as a private individual, I would not vote for John McCain under any circumstances,” said James Dobson.

    He noted that legislation . . regarding an attempt by Democrat leaders in Congress to create obstacles for ministries such as Focus (on the Family) to reach constituents with action messages about pending legislation, is being supported by McCain, too.

    Romney is the only person standing that can derail the Double Talk Express and its engineer, Old Forked Tongue. It is time for all conservatives to coalesce around Romney or accept a general election of Hillary/Obama vs McCain.

    That is the essence of a distinction without a difference.

  4. Clark says:

    Have been visiting here for a while, but have never ‘commented.’ I’m doing so now to commend Ben for his wise assessments. His comments are great buttresses to the articles posted here. I’m a conservative who cannot stand John McCain. I pray that we have a choice.

  5. Macbeth says:

    I appreciate the fact that we have a leader like Romney in this race. I watched the debate and there was no disputing he was the clear winner.

  6. Mr. Conservative says:

    Spending money in California is smart since this is not a “winner take all” state and goes by congressional districts. California is a state that has a very conservative Republican population. L.A., the Bay Area and a few other places are full of lib’s while the rest of the state is rather conservative.

  7. Maggie says:

    These ad “buys” are critical. McCain’s campaign has been broke, not even able to pay stafers, but now has the posibility of drawing in more donors. Mitt has to remain competitive. I read that the money has not yet begun flowing to McCain.
