Hugh Hewitt, at 9:14, PST:
It is stunning that Fox cannot call Arizona for John McCain. In the very unlikely event that McCain loses his home state, I don't think his campaign could recover any more than Romney could survive a loss in Massachusetts or Huckabee a loss in Arkansas.Yeah. Right.
Given the Rush blast, the Dobson declaration, and Huck's strength in the south, McCain can't be considered a frontrunner by any conventional standard.
Unless "by any standard", you mean, "by any standard other than the delegate count".
McCain has 47% of the vote in Arizona.
Perhaps Hugh should've titled his book, A Mormon Running the Commerce Department.
Note the price of the actual book has been reduced from 28 bucks, to a bit south of 10. I suspect it could go lower.
UPDATE: Most recent delegate count:
DEMOCRAT (2025 needed)
REPUPBLICAN (1191 needed)
