GOP pins hopes on Rom­ney pri­mary win

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

BOS­TON | Mas­sachusetts Repub­li­cans are hop­ing a big win for for­mer Gov. Mitt Rom­ney on Su­per Tues­day could put the state into play in Novem­ber.

Mas­sachusetts is one of 10 states vot­ing in Tues­day’s con­tests. Polls show Mr. Rom­ney with a com­mand­ing lead there.

Ron Paul, Rick San­to­rum and Newt Gin­grich have put lit­tle money or ef­fort into Mas­sachusetts.

But the same polls that show Mr. Rom­ney ahead in the GOP pri­mary show him trail­ing Pres­i­dent Obama in a state that tra­di­tion­ally backs Democrats.

Mas­sachusetts Repub­li­cans are work­ing to buck that trend by bol­ster­ing sup­port for Mr. Rom­ney in the state he gov­erned for four years.
