It's your husband great crowds across the convict and very enthusiastic in. We we can from the fact that that -- -- -- -- momentum Israel and that we've got to real support here we've. Doubled tripled quadrupled maybe even our support here in in a matter of a weakened. That's pretty good -- -- in a -- in the -- really mean. We've just been work in the grass roots and -- got a good team here and we wish we'd raise a little money earlier so we can deploy resources but that it did turn out to be the case -- -- think you have to do to. You know in the -- somewhere. Credible. I mean you know it be great to be in double digits and and you know. It's a good distance from repairing it be good place to assistant you know -- that we were if you remember going to this we were tied with basically. You know within 23% he was -- I was three something like that it. And now we're we're we're keeping up and the double digit Landon and right over looking over the shoulder of Huntsman Gingrich who have. You know the union leader endorsement and and -- has been here it spent millions and millions and millions self. If we can we can the and that hacker may be that clip one or two of them that would be office. And going forward in the south -- You have to win South Carolina if that's a state that you could do really really well it -- people say you know remember Gordon for caucuses as we started to do well out you have to win Iowa no -- mean. This this race is going to be over three primaries I mean this we're gonna we're we're going to be here for the long -- -- -- astronauts on fundraising base. -- three million dollars a week. We feel very strong that that's gonna continue on as -- as we eventually. Take the conservative -- to to post it -- and I don't think that's gonna happen and it. Couple of elections and in the press wants to make you know I know you love to write the stories that you know horse race stories it. And you know we want this race to go -- believe the argument -- the press we don't want as well over global -- well -- let you know then. Then it'll be the expectation that you know I hear this all the time well he went to three primaries then if he's going to be the nominee -- crazy. The American public got -- in the Republican Party conservatives obviously. Have some great concerns about him as -- is electability. And is his ability to do the job as president that someone like I would do stand up and face these problems and have a records showed that a moment to fight the fight. And governor Romney is not has no record as as governor of Massachusetts and we've got a very strong -- I think that's going to be very attractive to people. When this -- gets to be a two person race and I hope it's as if -- between being governor Romney at every confidence that we'll win that race. Thank the people New Hampshire today -- gonna give us a little bit of a bomb -- -- -- that. That they've seen us they like this and that that we're gonna move forward and and do a little better here than people think let's question yes. You your your message -- manufacturing your talk about -- -- it's Robertson in your grandfather's old minor you're. Your your good morning Mario looking. -- -- -- -- this morning. Appreciate your help thank you for your work to connect. To working class voters the so called Reagan Democrats Romney in the last few days has been. Trying to reach out to those groups talking about how he feared anything slip talking about that this probably what's important assignments -- the -- likes to fire people. You. But you sure that's a very -- period message to to lot of folks that let governor because of a different place that I -- and and you know obviously. Don't think the family you're born into. His family is. Great service to our country and has done a lot of lot of good things and but the life experiences. And you know -- we come from it's different and I think that. You know the data. Seven kids whose some of an immigrant group and a steel town and you know what the Catholic schools -- the -- -- you know -- my knuckles bear and that's. That's it's just a different experience that. The people in Ohio Pennsylvania and Michigan Indiana they can relate to a little little better than than somebody else again it's. It's nothing against governor Romney has other attributes that he brings to the table that that people may be attracted to but. As far as getting the voters that we need in the swing states that we have to win. Have a better shot at -- Huntsman says the -- like to fire people quote makes -- un electable. Perry turned it into a ringtone I don't know if you heard the beauty editor rendering. I and all of you know it was certainly inarticulate way of freezing -- -- -- -- But it's it's a little bit of gotcha I missed knowing you but you know what those -- and it's like John Kerry -- voted. -- for a voted against I don't know what he meant that the same time. It really hurt him. Let the people of this country I'm not gonna make a big issue that I instantly man. We all. -- things well what candidly but. Obviously the way you say things left and we can you know it provides an insight please audiences these things. With the -- today thanks we'll get out of Carolina a brilliantly. You and thank you.
