Washington (CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney picked up two more big endorsements this week, but neither appears likely to have much impact on sealing the deal for the GOP front-runner.
Tea party favorite Sen. Marco Rubio, often touted as a top possibility to be No. 2 on a GOP ticket, endorsed Romney on Wednesday, telling Fox News that, "It's evidently and increasingly clear that Mitt Romney is going to become the Republican nominee. We have to come together behind who I think has earned the nomination, and that's Mitt Romney."FULL STORY
Washington (CNN) - While none of the Republican candidates have heeded the increasing calls for them to drop out and cede the race to front-runner Mitt Romney, news broke late Tuesday that Newt Gingrich has replaced his campaign manager and is laying off one-third of his staff.
Even with the reorganization, the former speaker of the House has vowed to continue his bid for the presidential nomination.
Washington (CNN) - As the GOP presidential primary and caucus calendar nears its fourth month, a new survey indicates most Republicans would like to see Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul drop their bids for the nomination.
And a majority of Republicans questioned in a CNN/ORC International poll say their party's presidential nomination should be determined by the primaries and caucuses rather than at the GOP convention in Tampa, Florida in late August. But according to the survey, a majority of Republicans don't want Rick Santorum to end his campaign for the nomination.
Washington (CNN) - For the first time in five weeks, we have a Tuesday without any primary or caucus in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. But before any withdrawal symptoms kick in, let's take a look at where the hunt for delegates stands.
According to CNN's latest delegate estimate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has secured 569 delegates, and needs 575 more to reach the 1,144 needed to clinch the GOP nomination. That equals 47% of the remaining 1,213 delegates up for grabs.
(CNN) - Ron Paul on Monday argued that people should not dismiss his candidacy simply because he lags far behind in the fight for the Republican presidential nomination.
“Our people are in the right places. They’re doing the things to become delegates,” Paul said on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” adding that it was too soon in the process to “write anybody off.”
(CNN) – It's the trifecta of GOP presidential candidate interviews: the three leading presidential candidates are to appear on CNN's "The Situation Room" on Monday.
With the delegate count in Romney's favor, the federal health care law being argued before the Supreme Court, and the next four electoral contests just over a week away, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich, take questions from CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "The Situation Room" airs on CNN from 4-6 p.m. ET.
Washington (CNN) - Fresh off a big win in Louisiana, Rick Santorum insisted Sunday that Republicans are rejecting the premise that rival Mitt Romney has virtually locked up the GOP presidential nomination.
"Even though a lot of folks are saying this race is over, people in Louisiana said, 'No, it's not,' " Santorum said on the CBS program "Face the Nation" about victory in Saturday's Bayou State primary.FULL STORY
(CNN) - Rick Santorum's convincing win in Louisiana's GOP primary does little to change the delegate math that has rival Mitt Romney with a more than 2-to-1 lead, raising questions about whether he can generate broader appeal to win the nomination.
Santorum told supporters after Saturday's win in Louisiana that the race was far from over, recalling the naysayers who said Ronald Reagan was too conservative to win the nomination.FULL STORY
