Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee claimed victory today in the Republican presidential nomination process, after Mitt Romney dropped out of the race. "There's only three of us left," said Huckabee, "and Ron Paul doesn't really count. So it's just me and McCain. Conservatives will make the right choice and support the true Christian candidate."
At this time no candidate has enough delegates to claim the nomination. Huckabee claims that he will win all the remaining primaries, and win them handily, and thus get all the delegates he needs.
With a strong evangelical component in the remaining states, pundits predict Huckabee will at least make it a close race. "That God boy thing works in the GOP," noted CNN analyst Wolf Blitzer. James Carville retorted that "no one cares about the Republicans anyway."
Since Romney withdrew, the Mike Huckabee campaign has reported a surge in contributions, with over $100,000 today along with hundreds of bibles. Plans for a Ron Paul style money bomb are reportedly in the works as well, including one targeted for the Easter weekend.
