A Pyrrhic Victory for a Hollow Candidate
National Stonewall Democrats Executive Director Jerame Davis issued the following statement following Mitt Romney's win in tonight's Florida GOP primary:
"Mitt Romney's win tonight only proves that he can out spend and throw more mud than all of his opponents combined. It's a pyrrhic victory for a hollow candidate. When you have to buy your way to the top of the polls, it doesn't mean voters like you - it just means you have more money to tar and feather your competition. The GOP now has a very unpopular front runner, but the not-Romney wing of the Party is still the majority.
"You can't spell Romney without money and Florida has been a case study in why all that cash matters."
