Tonight’s debate will see one less podium. Jon Huntsman earlier today suspended his campaign and has endorsed Mitt Romney. How this will impact the South Carolina primary remains to be seen. Depending on which poll you looked at, Huntsman had between 5% and 1%. Santorum and Gingrich will be duking it out to convince voters that they are the most conservative candidate. Ironically, Santorum, in a recent poll was seen as the
most conservative, with Romney in second place, followed by Newt Gingrich.
Are Conservatives ready to embrace Mitt Romney? Much of how this race goes ahead will depend on what happens tonight. Rick Perry needs a real knock out punch, if he is to continue. Gingrich also needs to score points.
Please leave your comments for this debate as it happens.
