I hit him as hard as I could. He hit me hard as he could. It turned out he had more things to hit with than I did.
Newt Gingrich • Sounding pretty close to making a concession speech to Mitt Romnney in an interview on “Fox News Sunday” this morning. Gingrich, who previously sounded like he was banking on a brokered convention in Tampa to revive his hopes, stuck behind that manta, but says that Romney “far and away the most likely Republican nominee,” suggesting that Gingrich is seeing that possibility mostly as a pipe dream. Rick Santorum, currently running second, has said that he needs to win his home state of Pennsylvania to stay in the race — which looks like it might be difficult, as his fundraising is very weak at the moment. In other words, the inevitable is starting to look more and more inevitable.

Rick Santorum: Bro’s still pretty unpopular in his home state

  • 39% of people in Pennsylvania view Santorum favorably source

» The problem? People know him: Nearly six years after Rick Santorum lost a Senate election by an embarrassing margin, his perception in his home state of Pennsylvania has never really recovered. The AP story at the source link explains how Santorum really blew it at a meeting with conservative leaders in the state back in 2006, and how the encounter has come to haunt him. Also of note — few Pennsylvania politicians have publicly endorsed anyone, and the few that have are backing Romney. Santorum, by some estimates, needs to win 80 percent of the delegates to even have a shot at winning.

Whether Rick Santorum stays in or not, is now basically irrelevant and Mitt has a lot of ground to make up. I’m confident he can make it up, but every day that goes by that he’s not in the general campaign is a day lost.
Sen. John McCain • Offering a tough take on Rick Santourm, suggesting that by staying in, he’s severely hurting Romney’s general election campaign. McCain also thinks that Romney’s doing poor in favorability rankings largely because the campaign has been so bitter.

A sampling of some of Gage Skidmore’s photos, hand-picked by the photog. In case you missed it, earlier today we did a quick profile on the teenage photographer, who has kept Flickr awash in Creative Commons photos of GOP politicians — especially Ron and Rand Paul. Which one’s your favorite?

The establishment folks in Washington, D.C., they’re in the bubble and they see the world very, very differently than we do and I think most Americans do. And we’re going to continue to go out and try to elect conservatives to the presidency and that’s what we’re focused on.
Rick Santorum • Responding to political types suggesting he should drop out, days before the Wisconsin primary. Santorum says he’s in it until Mitt Romney clearly has enough delegates to win — something that likely won’t happen until June, based on how things are going so far. Romney just won another endorsement, this time from Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson (no relation), a show of support that has Santorum on the defensive.
