Poly Sci Professor Weighs in on Primaries

The Republican race continues its surprises. When Rick Santorum won in all three state contests on Tuesday. OSU Cascades Political Science Professor Jim Foster feels its become a two man race between Romney and Santorum. “Fairly clearly, the Republican Party is not happy with Mitt Romney. They may be happier with Rick Santorum on ideological and political grounds, but their overriding concern is beating Obama in the fall. You could call it their obsession. So the Republican Party has a real dilemma on its hands.” Foster believes Gingrich is out of the running, and Republicans have to decide which candidate a majority of them will throw their support behind. The next races are three weeks away in Michigan and Arizona, where Romney is expected to do well.
