Kevin Madden of the Romney campaign, setting expectations in a campaign memo just released:
We look forward to Governor Romney having a good showing in South Carolina. We still have an active ground operation and our volunteers are working hard to turn out our supporters. This is a state where John McCain has 100% voter identification so he should be able to win the primary.
Hmm. Is Team Romney more interested in setting the perception that McCain lost than Huckabee lost? Are they more confident they can top Huckabee in Florida? Or is it that they think Huckabee is a regional candidate in a race that’s about to go national?
